The National Air and Space Museum #2

Today, I continue with more pictures from a trip in July 2018 at Udvar-Hazy Center at 14390 Air and Space Museum Parkway, Chantilly, Virginia 20151 adjacent to the Dulles Airport. On my first post on this subject, the photos were from WWI and WWII.

For more info of the museum, here is the link.

My husband Henry has warm feelings for this T-33 as he has seen them fly over his childhood home in the fifties. He mentions it here in a post from Duxford England.

    • Thank you for seeing this post with only photos. I said it indirectly by mentioning the position of it too high for graffiti or destruction. Yes, it was the one that helped put an end to WWII
