Smithsonian Air and Space, #2

So the area with the WW2 artifacts occupies two rooms the A&S museum in DC, and truth be told, it feels a littleĀ  cramped. For a more wide-open experience, check The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in lovely Dulles near the airport).

In this photo, you can see how things are pretty much on top of each other to maximize the space. That said, the planes are what you’d expect to see in WW2 exibit, and there is a type of “theatre” mixing in this room that’s a little jarring. But this post is more about the B-17 Flying Fortress mural that dominates everything else in the room, especially if you enter from the second floor. That picture is here. Click on the picture for the full image. Stay tuned for more posts on the A&S museum in the coming weeks.
