Friday morning started with breakfast in the breakfast bar at the hotel, followed by a gathering of the morning tour group to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (the Dulles Air/Space Museum) in Chantilly, Virginia. The group divided into car loads and then caravaned to the Museum. Because of the number of Higdons attending, the group was divided into 2 tours with guides. The history behind each of the planes and advances in flying, both military and civilian, was truly eye-opening. Reading about the planes and the events is one knowledge, but seeing in reality of the size and design of the planes is astonishing. Following the tours, both groups went upstairs to the in house McDonald's for lunch.
