the Dulless annex blows the Mall site out of the equation,,,IMOI was in DC for a conference last week and took some time to visit the Smithsonian Air & Space museums. The museum on the national mall is still half closed for renovations which was a bit disappointing, but the Udvar-Hazy annex out by Dulles more than made up for it.
Some of my favorites...
SR-71 - one of the sexiest aircraft imho

Steeper climb than the WWII German attempts, too! Arado AR-234 jet bomber with rocket take off assist.Though not as impressive (or as smoky) as the B47 JATO takeoff, I have photographed KC130 JATO demos.
