Every June, I get the pleasure of traveling out to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s annex at Washington Dulles International Airport for Become A Pilot Family Day. I’m there to record the Airplane Geeks podcast, and, of course, check out the planes. So please enjoy the photo below of the Virgin Atlantic Global Flyer. Enjoy!

Every year on the second Saturday in June, it is my distinct pleasure to hang out with the Airplane Geeks to record the show live at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, National Air and Space Museum, next to Washington Dulles International Airport, for Become A Pilot Day.  One of the bonuses of the event is that we can arrive before the museum open to set up. There’s always enough time to wander the planes on display before the masses arrive.  Below is a shot I took of a Boeing 307 Stratoliner that was flown by Pan Am. Enjoy!

The Airplane Geeks Go To #PilotDay14

It was the second Saturday in June, so you know where the place to be for #avgeeks was – The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, National Air and Space Museum next to Washington Dulles. After a rainy week, the weather at IAD was great. Below are @AirplaneGeeks highlights from the event. Enjoy!

Editor’s note: I’m taking the week off for vacation, so check out some of my favorite blog posts of 2013. In June, I got to hang out with the Airplane Geeks at the Smithsonian’s annual Be A Pilot Family Day. I snapped this photo of friend and Geek Rob Mark as we walked though the museum. The post below first appeared on the blog on June 27. Enjoy!

Last week I got to hang out with the Airplane Geeks at the Smithsonian’s annual Be A Pilot Family Day out at the Washington Dulles outpost of the Air and Space Museum. I got there early, which gave me plenty of time to snap pictures, which you can see on my Flickr account, here.  Below is a shot I took of Geek Rob Mark, who, despite his age, is still enamored with aviation. And you can listen to the show, which I got to co-host, here. Enjoy!!
