Buzzing The National Mall

NationalMallWhile flying as a passenger today (February 23), I shot video of our takeoff on Rwy 01 at Washington National Airport from brake release to abeam Georgetown. Washington D.C. was designed by Pierre L’Enfant to create a “Federal City” and appear imposing to enemies.

In this century, the layout of the government quarter is stunning in its beauty. The National Mall, which was originally designed as a grand boulevard, is imbued with an air of power and grace. This¬†¬†view I often see is hard to share since pilot ethics/rules prevent filming while “working”.

Its nice finally to be able to have been in a position where seat location, sun angle and time of day all aligned for me to share a bit of what I see often, making DCA one of my favorite airports to fly in/out.

  1. great video! A few years back I landed at Reagan National on July 4th during the fireworks show. It was a fantastic! I wish I had filmed it.
