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!!

Every year I get to go to the the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va., for International Become a Pilot Family Day to record the Airplane Geeks podcast live. I get to spend the day surrounded by aircraft and talking aviation? Yes, please! Below is a photo I took of the Huff, Daland crop duster that eventually spawned Delta Air Lines. Enjoy!

This past Saturday, I spent the day with the Airplane Geeks recording their podcast live from Be A Pilot Family Day at the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Center, the Washington Dulles outpost of the Air and Space Museum.  My head nearly came off its swivel because I was snapping so many pictures.  Below are two of my favorites. Enjoy!!
