WWII aircraft (and an astronaut) seen this weekend

Living 13 miles outside Washington DC, and being alone with my toddler daughter this weekend, we went the Air and Space Museum and saw Buzz Aldrin signing his new book for folks. I only had my phone with me so apologies for the quality of the pics at the museum. Then, today, we went to Manassas airport and saw the CAF's B-29 Fifi, a P-51D that actually flew in WWII, the CAF's Helldiver and more. Here are some pics.

nice shots, thanks for sharing.

 

all these beautiful aircraft less than an hours drive from me and I could not make the trip the Manassas.  Will make it there in '14 for sure.

 

nice shot of Buzz.
