Day 4 - Air and Space Museum at Dulles AFB
After a quick breakfast at the hotel, we left Gettysburg and headed to Virginia. We arrived at the Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles AFB which is an extension of the Smithsonians Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. This center houses all the airplanes and space rockets that could not be displayed in DC. We started our visit with an IMAX movie about the Universe, then we were split up into two groups for a two hour tour of the entire facility. Lunch at the McDonald's inside the museum came after the tour, then we were allowed another couple of hours to tour on our own.
