So Tuesday me and Alexa are going to make a day trip of DCA to the Smithsonian. We are going to fly to BOS on the 6A.M. to watch the sun come up from first class than have breakfast in Boston and maybe I will spot a bit (if she lets me bring the camera) than jump on the 9 or 10 A.M. DCA and probalby come home to LGA on the 8 P.M.

Also I am off to CLT for 5 days on the 9th followed by SRQ from the 13th to 17th (pending I can get the 16th and 17th off as well)

Off to DCA now. Girfriend in tote complaining the whole way I am sure because the sun is not up and we have to go to Melville first to pick someone up. Report later. Boston has gotten the axe though. Afterall Legal seafood is not a good idea when you are allergic to seafood.

Girfriend in tote...

Cool, but if you stuffed her in a bag, who's going to carry your other bags?

So after waking up at 0400 in the morning to get ready so we could drive out to Melville but more like FRG area to pick a friend and son up we got on the road. I got lost 3 times going around the area not being soo familiar with Suffolk. We missed the 10 A.M. shuttle in what turned out to be a massive group of co workers eventually going to DCA. We departed out of LGA slightly delayed and to my suprise Mr. Ron Peel ended up flying out with us as well. We departed runway 13 our of LGA so I had my camera ready

Alexa and me peeled off from the rest of the group to spend what was only supposed to be a short time at the Air and Space Museum but the second I stepped foot past the metal detectors I had a trail of smoke behind me I darted off soo fast. We spent more than 3/4 the time there. We flew a full motion simulation F-4 flight and I spent more time flying inverted etc.. than anything though I must credit Alexa. She was pretty good for a gunner that was hanging from their straps most of the time.

After landing back in NY we all decided to hit a Thai place in Brooklyn called Sea which is mucho delicioso! On the way home as Alexa had to navigate us back to the GCP I played with the camera a wee bit

Nice shots of the Tidal Basin with the cherry trees in bloom. Your two police helos are the US Park Police B412s, N32PP and N412PP, callsign Eagle 1 and Eagle 2. In the pictures of DC, you can also see the building where I work!

I was in DC last weekend as well. I went to the air and space museum but was disappointed. Many exhibits were closed including the Jet Age exhibit. Quote disappointing.
