Today's touristy-ness... - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
Today's touristy-ness...
Today, Dylan, Paul and I took CalTrain down to San Carlos to the Hiller Aviation Museum. I'm not a huge fan of aviation museums- I feel sorry for airplanes hanging from a ceiling instead of being out flying.

But they had some cool stuff. My particular favorite was something called a RotorCycle: a tiny helicopter that could fold up into something the size of a torpedo. The theory was that the military would drop one to a downed pilot, he'd put it together in 5 minutes with no tools, then fly it 50 miles to safety.

The 747 nose section was pretty cool too.
