My day at the National Air and Space Museum
I delivered my model of the Horten Ho-229 to the Smithsonian yesterday. It was quite a thrill to tour the restoration shop and talk to the very talented people that work there. I got to see their He-219 Uhu, MArtin B-26 bomber “Flak Bait”, Apollo artifacts including a lunar rover, a U-2, EA-6B and much more. And, above all else, I got to see the Horten in person. It was nice getting there before the museum opened and meeting folks. I signed over the model and now the Smithsonian is the proud owner of a miniature Ho-229 that will complement the current display.
