This Saturday: Become a Pilot Family Day and Aviation Display
From www.nasm.si.edu/becomeapilot:

Saturday, June 14, 2008
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come to the Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA near Washington Dulles International Airport and enjoy this free event featuring educational activities and an outdoor aviation display. Walk around the tarmac and examine over 60 visiting vintage, recreational, military, and homebuilt aircraft.  Talk to pilots and find out what skills you need to fly.  Inside, test your piloting skills in flight simulators, meet model airplane experts, and hear a variety of guest speakers. The U.S. Air Force band’s Airmen of Note will provide musical entertainment. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is $12.

prettypammie will be working, but Quinn and I intend to be there from about 1 to 3 PM after his 4-H meeting in the morning.

Airmen of Note... is that the jazz band? If it is, they're quite good, at least when I saw them many moons ago...

We did this last year, and it was a heck of a lot of fun. The only problem was that it was hot and very sunny, and there's pretty much no shade out on the tarmac (just the shadows of the planes). We're not going this year, because we just have too much else to do this weekend, but I'm sure it'll be just as much fun.
