 The Air & Space Annex at Dulles in Virginia is a really great place to visit if you are interested in flight.  The Space Shuttle Discovery is one of the major attractions.  The Enterprise used to be there but was switched out with Discovery which actually went into space.  Enterprise is now at a museum in New York City.  Here I got fairly up close and personal with Discovery.  😃  


  1. Very nice shot. It's interesting to see the detail on the shuttle. The photo gives a glimpse into the stresses the shuttle went through during taking offs and landings.

  2. Many thanks Tom. Yes, apparently, at least the underside tiles, start out white and then turn dark on re-entry heat.
