Where was I last week?

January 7, 2014

in space

No, not really in space.

But one of the places we visited while in Virginia was the Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air & Space Museum – and, if you have been there, you will know that it is spectacular!  The space is immense, but with sky walks, stairs and balconies, it is easy to navigate.  There were a lot of people there the day we visited.  The logical way the exhibits are laid out – and quality of the light and airiness of the space – contributed to a very pleasant experience.

Here are some more photos – but go there if you can.

Want to know how big the space shuttle is?  That is my almost six foot tall person standing there under it.

Since the topic is related to Air & Space, let me mention the 80th birthday of Flash Gordon:

Flash Gordon is the hero of a science fiction adventure comic strip originally drawn by Alex Raymond. First published January 7, 1934.  Ref. Wiki.

  1. I visited Udvar-Hazy this past August; it’s an aviation buff’s absolute dream. We got a lot o’ the same shots!


    • I thought I remembered your visit to the museum from your site. I loved it and hope to return.
