** Noah at the National Air and Space Museum**

The magic of flight has captured 19-month-old Noah as he stares up at the giant nose of a Douglas DC-7 on display at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. Do we have a future pilot in the making? While it's too early to say whether Noah will develop a passion for aviation, he looks to be off to a great head start. The nose section is from American Airlines' Flagship Vermont.

Thanks to Patrice Payment for sharing this great moment with Flying.
