On Approach

My intention yesterday evening was to take a photo of Foggy Bottom in Georgetown and post it here for my friend Aitch Em in the Ewe Kay, but alas, the photos did not turn that well. I'm going to try again on Wednesday, when I have the day off and I can be up bright and early for picture taking. In the meantime, though, I give you this plane on approach to National Airport. All planes approaching DCA must fly along a path that follows the flow of the Potomac River which means if a flight approaches from the north flying south, you're in a series of turns and banks that you otherwise don't experience in other approaches anywhere else in the country. This is an airliner as it banks over Roosevelt Island, just south of Foggy Bottom and across from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
