    If you ever visit DC, you MUST visit the air and space museum near Dulles airport in VA, just about 20min drive from DC.

    They've got tons of rare planes, like x-35( yes!!!), SR-71, Concord, the space shuttle, B-25 bomber, F4 and more!!!

    Nice.

    What are those Japanese aircraft? Looks like they're painted up to be an Aichi D3 and a Nakajima B5 but I can't see enough of them to be sure, and the tail fin root appears to be a little too far forward on the rear one for a D3

    Those are replicas built for the movie Tora Tora Tora. They were built from T-6 Texans and BT-13 Valiants. A lot of these aircraft were bought from the movie company after production ended and quite a few of them still fly today.
