Some photos from Washington D.C
Running on little sleep, fighting jet lag (well, who am I kidding, it’s really not worth the fight, you’re gonna loose either way) and all those other “benefits” that comes with traveling across the Atlantic Ocean. Here are a few photos from my trip to Washington D.C this memorial weekend. I will write a post later about some of the impressions, and I’ll make the Facebook photo album public. Here are a few goodies from my trip! I had an awesome time, and I can’t wait to go back sometime soon!
First plane of my trip – Dash 8-Q400series registration LN-WDI (I know, I’m such a geek)
The White House (as seen from the Ellipse/South)
The White House, as seen from Pennsylvania Avenue
The Washington Monument
Hmm… I think I know her!
The US Capitol
So it was brought to my attention that someone I personally know have flown this particular aircraft, before it was donated to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in D.C, and she was also a part of the ceremony when NWA (Northwest Airlines) donated the nose section to the Smithsonian Institutions.
Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Vega, just a few days after the day that marked the 80th anniversary of her transatlantic solo flight in this aircraft, as the first female pilot (aviatrix) ever!
Arlington National Cemetery. 400 000 bodies are buried here. And every Memorial Day weekend they put up flags by 200 000 headstones.
Europe-bound on this Airbus Industrie A340-343X with Scandinavian Airlines
Touchdown in Norway with a Dash 8 Q-400 from Wideroe.
That’s all I have for you tonight. More to come in the coming days, so stay tuned!
