I sat, as I always do, looking out the media center window at Redskin Park today. How convienent, it also provides a wonderful glimpse onto the approach path for runway 19R at Dulles International.
To get an idea of where I'm looking from, watch this video and pause it at 6:31.
In the lower right quadrant (an inch or so from the bottom and right), you'll see a patch of green that's more green than everything around it. That's the Redskins' artificial turf practice field. That building in front is their headquarters; the main entrance is in the middle, the media center just to the right.
So that's what it looks like from the sky.
Among the aircraft I had the pleasure of seeing:
-- British Airways 747
-- Saudi Arabian Airlines 747
-- United 747, 777 and 767
-- Air France 777
-- Virgin Atlantic A340
-- Scandinavian Airlines A330
-- KLM 777
And, on top of that, I sat in that same spot a few weeks ago and saw something I honestly never thought I'd see in my lifetime: A Korean Air 747.
God, I really am hopeless, aren't I?
NOTE: Links to pictures will be added as soon as I can. Airliners.net is undergoing a server change; it recommended I check out MyAviation.net, but frankly the photos I saw there were of poor quality. (EDIT: Done.)
