    KDCA - National Airport 5/17/15

    I hear there some sort of air show coming up on Long Island, so I'm on my way back to see what that's all about...

    Along the way, I'm stopping in Washington, and I paid a visit to Gravelly Point for a little late afternoon DCA spotting. You can get a unique view of arrivals from the park.









    I was pleasantly surprised to find the AS "Cars" scheme 737 preparing to depart.

    I used to play rugby at Gravelly Point when I was Quantico based, it was hard to keep my mind on the match with 727s in full thunder close enough to touch overhead : )
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Great catch on the AS Cars. I wanted that one when I was out west and didn't get it.
