Phase II

Just thought i would pass this on if anyone is traveling to Northern VA. Here are 2 pic of the first air craft delivered "The Helldiver" to the new addition to the Steven F. Udvar Hazy Center Phase II, "The Restoration Hanger" At the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. This 250,000 Sq Ft addition is due to open in the beginning of 2011.

Thanks for the information. Our little Iowa town of 2500, had a B-29 named for it during WW11. I have hope to visit that area again.

Here is 2 pic of the Enola Gay (B-29) when it was first put on display.This is the first time the Enola Gay has been fully assembled since 1950 and this is it's final home.

Great pics. I'm always interested in any kind of history and to me authentic artifacts always brings life to history.
Thanks for the pics.

great pics and thanx!
i've been a WWII aviation fan all my life. flew a 1943 AT-6 for one of my birthdays.

used to live near the Chino Planes of Fame Museum. lots of restorations there.
almost got to volunteer at the local CAF, where they were restoring a B-25.
but, life got in the way.

one of my dreams is a trip to the Air/Space Museum.

please keep posting pics.

Rockwood,
Thanks for the great pics. Haven't been to the Smithsonian in a while but want to get back soon. My wife is a retired history teacher so she is very interested in anything dealing with any type of history.
