In the main hangar area, things are set up by category, such as WW II, racing planes, and Vietnam aircraft. In a separate room are space vehicles, which houses what to me is the best thing in the whole collection: The Space Shuttle Enterprise! I never appreciated the size of the shuttles until I was standing below the Enterprise.
Other top attractions at the Annex are the Enola Gay and an SR-71 Blackbird (although that didn't impress me overly; we've had one on display in NYC for a while). There are planes this size, as well as jetliners, in the hanger. Just the size of the building is impressive. There is also a tower from which visitors can watch planes arrive and depart from Dulles, a mock-up of a working control tower, and an IMAX theater. Although the museum is free, there is no free way out there. You have to either take a shuttle bus from the Air and Space Museum on the mall ($7 roundtrip) or pay for parking. For all the time I've spent at the museum, I anticipate spending much time here in trips to come.
From journal Lincoln Bedroom? Yeah, right.
