Random Aviation Photos – The Airplane Geeks Edition!

20 Jun

If you weren’t able to make it out to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center at Washington Dulles Airport for the annual Become a Pilot Day and aviation display this past Saturday, you missed it.

My favorites — the Airplane Geeks — recorde their podcast live.  My daughter, the self-dubbed Princess of Planes, had a grand time with Uncles Max, Rob, David and Dan.  And it was SO great to meet some of my online Twitter aviation geeks, including @Defender13, @JimWay and @PlaneSafeOrg. It was also a thrill to meet Airplane Geeks favorite Micah and his mother Harriet (wearing her Airplane Geeks t-shirt). So below are some photos I took from the event.  Enjoy!
