Yes, the Smithsonian has an Air and Space Museum near Dulles Airport.

I've seen this fly over OKC before, and it's impressive.

It's too bad they can't fly it into Ronald Reagan or they could practically push it up the 14th Street Bridge and Independence Avenue. :)

Offhand, I'm wonder where they're going to put it? Hmmm. That's a new one...I'm receiving an error when I try to insert an inline image that already in my attachment folder.

Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /home/satguys/public_html/editpost.php on line 437
