How cool - and loads closer than the one in Palm Desert! Garrett flew a Fed Ex plane, another random plane, a fighter jet cockpit simulator, and another simulator which he decided was more fun not even turned on. He got confused though - the woman from the museum that was helping us told G that the sounds was about equal to that of a vacuum cleaner and he kept asking me all day how a vacuum cleaner helped the plane fly. Oh well.
Brady wanted to go in everything too. Soon enough Brady, soon enough.
After that we went across the street to the Santa Monica airport Public Admin bldg where they have a free public viewing deck which is open dawn to dusk every day. We had excellent timing and saw three planes take off and two land - we cheered them on and welcomed them back from their trips.
