The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall tops many tourists’ must-see list. But for true aviation buffs, some of the most exciting exhibits in this world-class collection lie 30 miles away, in Chantilly, Va. The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center opened in 2003 in a massive complex built from three airplane hangars. It houses thousands of space and aviation artifacts — from the Space Shuttle Discovery to the Enola Gay bomber. The museum’s chief curator joins us to examine the collections and the restorations taking place behind the scenes.
