Washington D.C. Day # 3 (last day)

Our plan for the last day? Take the metro back into D.C. and go to the Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum. I have to say it was a nice short walk from the metro stop. After the day before that was nice. But we were still walking alot! I sat at the entrance to some exhibits and just waited for them to wander through, my blisters had blisters I kid you not. And my foot was cramping again.
Here's a few shots:
The Spirit of St. Louis (a replica)
A "Jenny" was a war plane then used as crop dusters, air shows but the biggest job was mail delivery!
A real Lunar Module built then the mission was scrapped due to the success of the mission before it. The Wright Brothers plane. This is the plane used in the first flight at Kitty Hawk, it has had some work done since then obviously. The Smithsonian updated all the canvas but used the same kind.
