Lope’s Hope

This is another cool aircraft (P-40E Warhawk) displayed at the Air and Space Museum near the Dulles Airport in Virginia. You can read more about the history of these single-engine, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground attack aircrafts here on Wikipedia.

  2. Have you been there before? I got to see the Enterprise. I also recomend taking a good look at the Enola Gay.

    I always love the colors in all your photos. Rich, never overly bright, a perfect balance to make your photographic gems shine.

    Those WWII fighter planes meant business, didn’t they? They even looked aggressive. Beautiful plane: Tragic war.

    Good use of vignetting technique to draw the eye to the subject. Nice work!

    Hi,
    Great photo, it really shows how they went to all the trouble of painting this plane, it does look mean. 🙂

      Keep in mind that you need to have a car to get to this one, I don’t think there is public transit at this place. There is another museum in DC, I never been there, not sure what type of aircrafts they have there, but you can get there via public transit system. have fun!

    Love these old warbirds, they have such character. Went to the Duxford Airshow in the UK a few years ago. Amazing experience watching these beautiful craft thunder overhead.
