The idea of my visit to Washington DC was to see the Space Shuttle Discovery.
The Space Shuttle Discovery was flown to Dulles International Airport Washington DC atop a modified NASA 747 on April 17.2012
It was delivered to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museumhttp://airandspace.si.edu/explore-and-l ... discovery/Space Shuttle Discovery

Unfortunately I did not have a wide enough lens to fit the whole shuttle in, I had to crop the tail.
The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum is also home to the Enola Gay and the Air France Concorde.
