The obligatory USS Enterprise pics when you visit the Air & Space museum in Washington DC.

Wait, what, the one in the city? Not the one outside? Please tell me it isn't so, how the fuck did I miss that?!


EDIT:
So. It's. In. The. Store. WHY IS IT IN THE STORE? I never went in the store since I didn't want TO BUY ANYTHING. I flew all the way there, saw all the cool stuff in the museum, lots of other stuff in DC, but I missed the motherfucking Enterprise since I didn't feel like getting a damn tin space shuttle?! SERRRIOOUSSSLLLYYYYY!!!!!

Sigh. At least I saw the space shuttle Enterprise in NY.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I for got to ask you Tom, did you bring your kids? If so, how did they like it. My daughter is going to be 4 in a few weeks so I'm just wondering how interesting she's find it.

The model isn't structurally sound enough anymore to be suspended or hung. As the Smithsonian rotates exhibits semi-frequently, and it themes its placements (you aren't going to see stuff about the Mars Rover alongside '50s airplanes or whatever), there wasn't really a way to give the Enterprise a permanent home. However, as part of the renovations of the museum a while back, a new three-story gift shop was installed, and so the Enterprise was placed in the lower level -- you can get close to it and examine it in detail, but it's on a stand so the model doesn't suffer any further structural degradation.

It's not the most optimal solution, but it makes sense.

Cool shots, Tom Hendricks!

I'm planning a trip to D.C. this summer ... I'll be on the lookout for the Enterprise during my own visit to the Smithsonian. Good to know where it's situated!

Yes, we have the kids with us and they loved it, the model is surrounded by Star Wars & Star Trek stuff, plus other space related items. My sons love, love anything to do with Space. If you ask my oldest what he wants to be when he grows up, the answer is always an Astronaut. Here are a few shots,

I remember my first package of freeze-dried astronaut ice cream. Good times.
