Taking flight

Last year my brother, Bob, and his wife, Shannon, came to NYC for a book fair (see May 05 in Archives). This year the fair was held in Washington, DC, so I arranged some performances in the area (including one at my nephew, Charlie's school. He's Joyce's sister Amy's son.)

Bob and I were able to get out to the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Center, the new annex to the National Air & Space Museum. We took a tour, and the guide's last story was about Bob Hoover. After the crowd dispersed we told him our dad used to fly in air show's with Bob Hoover. He gave us an extra tour and showed us some planes that are the only examples of their kind in existance: pretty cool.
