Photo of the Week!

F 5.6; 1/250; ISO 100; 135mm.

Shot on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

Like many of the other Delta flights departing Washington’s National Airport, this plane is off to Atlanta.  While there are excellent spotting opportunities right underneath the flight path at Gravelly Point, planes still fly relatively close to the city center… and it can sometimes be a bit disconcerting too to hear the roar of a jet engine at the Lincoln Memorial!  AvGeeks rejoice though, because even though you may be out on a sunset tour of the monuments, you can still get your fix.

If I do say so myself, this is a pretty scene… but it’s even prettier for those onboard!  (Check out this cover image if you don’t believe me!)
