January 19, 2014
While the Smithsonian Institution's Air and Space and Museum on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., contains popular artifacts ranging from the Wright Brothers' first plane to the Apollo 11 capsule, another treasure trove for aviation fans exists a few miles to the west.
The Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy Center, opened in 2003, features such aircraft as the space shuttle Discovery, a Concorde supersonic transport, the SR-71A Blackbird that flew from Los Angeles to Washington in just over an hour, and the B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay." Enjoy this photo tour.
