Air and Space Museum put aircraft in your face

The newer Air and Space Museum near Dulles Airport in Chantilly, Va., is outstanding in the way the aircraft are displayed.

The aircraft hang just feet away off the walkways that course above the hangar floor.
This U.S. Navy Corsair is in your face and banking for another strafing run on a Japanese aircraft carrier
I spent a few days in the enormous hangar that holds the Space Shuttle, SR-71 spy plane, F-14 Tomcat, as well as Nazi fighters from World War II and German, French, and British biplanes from World War I.

It's a great way to spend a rainy and misty day in the middle of the winter.
