April 24th-27th, 2010 pt.3

The next day, Timmer gave us free passes to go to the Museum of Flight

There were all kinds of various aircrafts on display

1902 Wright Glider replica

Lockheed M-21 Blackbird, or as I like to call it, the Cobra Night Raven.  Anybody G.I. Joe fans?

Inside the cockpit

Must be confusing to have to know what all this means

Inside the cockpit of an F-18 Hornet

Ready for takeoff captain!

The museum also had a space exhibit

The kid’s area had many interactive displays and flight simulations

The airpark featured the Concorde…

…and Air Force One which has carried presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.

The conference room, where hard decisions have been made.  You look very confident in the decision you just made Amanda.

With great power, comes great responsibilities.  Blowing up an entire country is just a phone call away. 

For the longest time, I thought it was ironic that Nixon constantly brandished the trademark double “peace sign” during the Vietnam conflict.  I found out later that the two-fingered sign stood for “victory”.

We rode back to Timmers’ and the four of us had lasagna for dinner

Mystery of flight.

Solved using hot air balloon.

I am not a crook.
