I got to see and SR-71 Blackbird, which I have wanted to see ever since I was a kid. From looking at the components up close it must have taken millions of hours of engineering to design and build that plane.
There was a Space Shuttle trainer, which is not an actual shuttle, but it is the same scale. It is massive to say the least. The shuttle bay is open and I got to walk through which was very neat.
There were also lots of WWI and WWII era planes. I thought it was amusing that the Wright Brothers developed a motorized plane around 1906 and in less than ten years there were guns on planes. I guess war really does drive development.

I got two shuttles from Downieville Outfitters and rode the classic Downieville Downhill with some slight variations. I had plenty of time to get to the second shuttle, even after stopping to help several people with broken down bikes.
The trails are all singletrack with some nice banked corners but they were very rocky. The trails are well maintained, so the rocks are arranged well, but these are definitely trails for a full suspension bike.
It reminded me of Porcupine Rim where if you are timid and calculating through the rocks it will be a miserable ride. But if you let your instincts take over and let yourself go faster it is a lot of fun.
What a fast rocky thrill ride that was, I can't wait to go back.
Surprisingly, the dirt still had lots of grip and it drained well enough that it didn't get muddy and sloppy. The roots, however, became very slick and the slightest amount of weight would cause my tires to slip off.
I was so filthy by the end of the ride that I had to wash every bit of gear I was wearing.
Would I do it again? Yes, probably. I just have to be prepared for lots of cleanup afterwards.
