    Looks like they added quite a few things since is was at the AFM. Some of those aircraft were outside when I was there. Nice pics, museum lighting tends to be stark anyway, High ceilings, open structural members, etc.

    DPR,

    Just a note for you on the Smithsonian Air and Space collection. It is split into two locations, the original small hall on the National Mall houses a few gems like the Wright flyer and Apollo 11. The new building is out at Dulles Airport, the Udvar-Hazy Center. Huge well lit building, but easy to do in a day. Lighting is from a lot of windows there so you can actually get some decent shots. The hall is long enough and open enough that a medium tele is useful on the upper walkway to isolate some of the displays.

    Kgosden;
    They were still building it when I was there, although they did have some stuff at Dulles, mostly restoration work you were allowed to observe.
    Gotta go back.

    Yup, especially liked the Apollo 11 exhibit... as I watched it splash down from the USS Goldsborough (DDG20). Unfortunately, did not have my old Oly half frame at the time.

    Definitely need to go back to DC as well. 12 years is a long time.

    I was at the Udvar-Hazy by chance the first week it opened. It was also the same week as the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers first flight. The space wing with the shuttle was not yet open at that time. I have not been back since. At the time I only had my little Minolta Dimage X 2mp camera with me. You can have fun reusing the planes with the background of your choice.Name:  The hanger 3 post.jpg

    Some how I managed to miss this giant thread. That's an agressive schedule! I'd have a hard time touring Northern California alone in that amount of time. Looks like the family is having fun though

    It's a shame that they were beaten by 9 months by Richard Pearse but I guess they had a better PR machine at the time so good luck to them for being the second place getters who have been recorded as winners.

    Ah, but the real winner might be Gustav Whitehead in Connecticut in 1901.

    Documentation is everything.

    Hmmmm. We seem to have hijacked another one.
