Worth a Visit...
A lot of avianuts attribute at least part of their obsession with flying things to youthful experiences at airports - at least those of us old enough to remember peering through fences, hanging out on observation decks and a more open airport environment. Recent years have seen priorities of security and efficiency obstruct the view and the fun of airports fade away. BWI has made a commendable step toward countering that trend.
It's a little Air & Space Museum (which has a store there), with displays, mockups, and lots of real aircraft parts - even better than the old view through the fence in some ways.
|Well, you can't hear big old piston engines running up, but the view is great and the chairs are comfortable.|
|The interactive aviation displays present a look at weather, communications, traffic control, aerodynamics and nearly everything else which involves flying.|
See the BWI home page for more on the observation gallery and other BWI information.
