Museum Field Trip

Category : News

UHphoto1On July 4, 2013 our students took an exciting trip to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA. The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is the companion facility to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum which houses a collection of craft too large for the museum in the DC National Mall. We had the opportunity to see several airplanes and spacecraft that played a significant part in American aviation and space travel history including the Space Shuttle Discovery, the Enola Gay B-29 Superfortress, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, and the Gemini VII space capsule. The museum also displayed historic aircraft originating from other countries including Britain, France, Japan, and the former Soviet Union. Getting to see the actual air and space crafts that molded so many facets of our history was rewarding to all of us who went. From the towering height of the control tower to the massive size of the Air France Concorde Airliner our students also enjoyed getting a firsthand perspective the gigantic scale of the artifacts available at this museum. Everyone had a wonderful time. For more pictures check out our Gallery section.
