After standing inside the bomb bay of the B 36, the B 29 seems a lot smaller than you might think..Wright Patterson air museum is a MUST see for anybody wanting to see aviation history..

Thank you for this post..

Totally agreed! I was on the VA side in front of my office. I thought the B-17s were big but the -29 was positively huge!

P-51s are a million times cooler in person. A righteous roar from their engines too.

This website will have the video uploaded in the near future if you want to see. My phone did not take good enough pictures to post.

I live in Silver Spring but sadly missed it all because we were in Cape Hatteras. But it was not too shoddy of a day to be at the beach either..

I saw it from Gravelly point, right beside National airport. One of the P51s (I think it was) had engine trouble and had to land at National - came in right over our heads. A great show. There were people crowding all the parks along the river and my wife says the roof tops were crowded in DC.
