|the enormous Spruce Goose towers over all|

It may look like there is no one else in the museum with us.....I try, hard, to exclude people from my photos when possible, except Dave, of course. (and trash cans, and electric poles, and street signs, etc.) Sometimes I get lucky.

|colorful WWI trainers|
|shapes, colors and purpose changed through the years|
|SR-71 Blackbird spy plane|
|one of the SR-71's engines|
(complete with instruction manual?)
|radar testing aircraft|
looks like a dodo bird to me.....
|moon rover's unique tire|
Oh, and did I mention that the landscaping around these buildings and the collections they hold is every bit as impressive?
