Bleeding heart

Passed a pleasant afternoon at the Hazy Center with my wife, her cousin, and one of his friends. This place holds planes from the beginning of flight to space flight. It would be remarkable just for the size it has to be to house its collections, and the significance of the things that are here is really amazing. I am in awe of the creativity, persistence, and fortitude it took to get men into the sky. I am saddened that so much talent and so many lives were wasted on warfare.

Hazy Center. Strange that I picked an image of a warplane rather than a civil aircraft or a spacecraft
