My Visit to Dupont - Visit to The Museum of Flight

This post actually continue from My Visit to Dupont - Part 1

Yesterday, I stopped blogging right before the outings in The Museum of Flight as I was a bit tired, plus the Death Race was showing.

Anyway, back to the outings, we started out from my hotel at about 11ish in the morning. First thing that we do is to stop by at the Bikini Baristas to get our cup of coffee of the day, while having a nice view of barista in bikini making our cup of coffee. Too bad, I did not manage to snap the pictures of the barista making coffee, but my plan is to go there some other day after work to grab a cup of coffee instead of having it from Starbucks, since we have Starbucks in Intel everyday and Malaysia also have Starbucks.

Then we head to The Museum of Flight where we get to see a lot of airplanes and the information of each plane and some other cool stuff like Space shuttles, rockets etc. Here, we also get to visit the Red Barn - the workshop where Bill Boeing built his first airplane. Both of us also try out the cockpit of the Mach 3 Blackbird spyplane.

The coolest thing about the visit to The Museum of Flight is we get to go aboard the original jet Air Force One which is on loan from the National Museum of the United States Air Force. The Flying Oval Office is actually the Boeing VC-137B (707-120/SAM 970). SAM 970 has carried presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon as well as VIPs such as Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger. It would be nice actually traveling inside such a luxurious jet. Not only that, we also get to go aboard on the one of the supersonic Concorde which is donated by the British Airways. There are only twenty Concordes ever built.
