Took these at the Air and Space Museum in DC. Please let me know what you think. They were all handheld because I forgot my monopod. Also, they were shot with my new Tamron 28-75 2.8 (love it already) with the Digital Rebel.

Too bad the Pan American clipper is in the museum. I got to see it fly at EAA before they shipped it off. At least it is still airworthy, I detest gate guardians, airplanes are meant to fly!!
It's got to be tough lighting in there.

Nice job handlheld. The flying cloud is nice and shiny..what type of aircraft is it?

The shot of the "Flying Cloud" is nice to see. I agree with Adamsti about it's being grounded and pent up in a museum, but I guess that's how they protect this precious piece of aeronautical history. :(
I would LOVE to see more if you've got them. :D

It's a Boeing 307.

Here are a couple of more. Never had a chance to see the concord fly but is another that should still be in the air. May post the one of the SR-71 I have. As an Air Traffic Controller in England I use to watch it fly all the time and never once passed up the chance to watch it climb out of sight in a few seconds.

Yep. Concorde should still be flying. I consider myself very fortunate to have seen and heard both flavours (British and French) of this bird. Pure magic.
