We had three hours to kill as we were flying back to the UK so we thought we would pop over to the museum. Everything about it impressed. Firstly it is free. The building is modern and well laid out. The exhibits were fascinating. The space shuttle, Enola Gay etc. Some real aviation history in there. As a Brit, shame they did not have a bit more on British aeronautical history....the modern jet engine, Brit invention - swing wing, VTOL, first commercial jet airliner, first jet aricraft capable of super cruise - the English Electric Lightning, thrust vectoring etc. Come on Smithsonian, get some Brit gear in there!
