Our World - Grandsons, air and space

Winston and his Dad enjoy the view from the Observation tower

Earlier we had two of our older grandsons visit. This week the youngest two are visiting. Monday we visited the National Air and Space Museum near Dulles Airport. The museum displays actual aircraft and spacecraft from the early days of aviation to today. There are also models and prototype aircraft on display. There have been additions since my last visit including touchscreen info panels for some exhibits.
