I was happy just to see the SR71 and the Enterprise...everything else was overkill! LOL

I love the photo of Marine 1 flying by the Washington Monument! I took it from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

I stood there behind the SR-71 and could almost imagine seeing those engines light up!

Love the B-29 also!

Have you ever heard about the "supposed" name change on the Sr-71?
Was supposed to be called RS 71- for research and surveillance but Johnson (I think) screwed up and called it SR-71....nobody wanted to correct him so the name stayed like that " supposedly".

Nice pics. I remember back in the 80's I was at Wright Patterson Air Force Base for several weeks for a class and I got to see an SR71 fly in and land that was going on display at the museum there. It was a big deal, they even dismissed us from class so we could watch it come in; what a sight!

That is the scene of the Occupy DC camp. Tough living conditions?...when we walked by, they were being served a catered lunch from on of the local businesses!

Cool trivia! It's also awesome that that bird set the trans continental flight record on it's way to the Museum from LA! Average speed of 2124 mph...took him 1 hour, 4 minutes and 20 seconds!

Shuttle Discovery is coming to the NASM sometime in 2012!
