A few more pic

We have an event for the kids in October, it's called "Air and Scare" and it is held every year for Halloween. The first pic is the first and only time this has been done, the museum was lite up with different colors and projected on different parts of the museum. We set on the South side of the runway to Dulles Airport and with all of these colors it distracts the pilots when they are coming in for a landing, so this will properly never happen again.

The second pic is the SR-71 lite up for a special event that was held at the museum, this type of thing is done all of the time but in different colors and patterns this is just one example.

The third pic is when the museum was started, what you are looking at is the North end of the main exhibit hanger and the round object to the left is the Imax theater.

The fourth pic is an interview with Michael Bay, this to place at the museum when Mr Bay started filming "Transformers II Revenge Of The Fallen".

And the last pic is the snow sliding off of the the roof of the museum during a small snow fall in 2009, this is nothing compared to some of the slides i have seen in the past and have other pic of. To the far right is our cooling tower and to the left is our natural gas main that feeds our three boilers.
