 Inside the Museum 
just inside the entrance, you find a memorial to the 9/11 tragedies of 4 high jacked planes two of which took numerous American Airline employee's lives

Everyone gathered for a group photo before we left the museum

 Time to Head to lunch 
The rain had stopped and the parking lot and roads were drying out
Grabbing our Cruiser Photo for attending this event - did you remember to grab yours?
we caravanned by heading south on 360 to Division, then west over to the restaurant.  We had a small delay as we headed down Division; we met a funeral precession and pulled over to pay respect.

The group had lunch at the Grease Monkey in Arlington
They had tables reserved for us - they were also having a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen 3-day breast cancer walk
