Which airline?!

For Valentine’s I wanted to bring Carlos and the boys to a Planetarium since they had never been. We ended up in D.C. at the Air and Space Museum. Unfortunately, our Planetarium show happened to be about black holes – not very romantic. I will have to bring Carlos to see one about constellations another day.

Anyway, while we were walking around waiting for our show, I spotted this airplane and started laughing.

I can only imagine they don’t provide luxury flights.

(Apparently “NACA” stands for “National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics.”)

For those who don’t speak Spanish, “naca” – (or “naco” for a male), is slang for a lower class person.
