I am fortunate to live ~20 minutes from the Smithsonian Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. At the back of the Museum is there restoration hangar, surrounded on two sides by a second level glass enclosed observation walk which allows guests to look in on what is being restored. Because these aircraft aren't actually on display, I was not able to figure out what type of plane this is:
I was originally thrown off by the wings in the background, clearly embossed with the German Iron Cross, but I don't think the flying boat in the foreground is German. Can anyone identify the plane in the foreground?
Here's a link to the original photo, in case you want to get a closer look.
