The big draw of the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Center for my dear friend Fox and I was the Space Shuttle Discovery. He and I both dreamed of flying in it when we were little, so when we arrived at the museum shortly before closing, we made a beeline for the Shuttle exhibit and saw little else. While I was darting around taking photos, I noticed that he was spending a great deal of time just staring at the Shuttle. I could feel his reverence from across the room; it was as if he were visiting a memorial for a childhood hero, an intense mix of joy, admiration, and sadness. I had to capture the moment, and after he noticed me taking this, I joined him. Both of us had misty eyes by the time we left the exhibit.

I've not seen the Discovery at the Udvar Hazy center, though I did have a fine view of it when it arrived at Dulles on its carrier 747. At the time, I still had a window office that faced the airport. I took a lot of pictures during the first flyby and then the landing.

I felt pretty much the same way seeing it and when seeing the Enterprise loaded up for its departure. I guess it was a fantasy/dream for a lot of us to want to fly in it.
