April 2004 I bought a flight from Vienna to Washington with KLM only
for 130 Euros without tax. In the end of April
I started to my trip to the United States. Boarding for KLM flight
1838 was at gate C51. Our aircraft was a Boeing
737-306 PH-BDA. At 6.55am local time we started at runway 29 to my
first stop in Amsterdam where I had a short transfer.
After 2 hours of light time we landed at runway 18C. I continued onboard
KLM 651 to Washington - this time I flew with
a Boeing 767-306(ER) PH-BZA. Takeoff was at runway 36L. The flight
time to Washington was aprox. 8 hours - landing
in Washington/Dulles was at runway 19R.
After customs I tokk a taxi to downtown Washington, where I spent
the next 3 night at the Renaissance hotel. From the hotel
a lot of sightseeing were in walking distance. The first stop at the
next morning was at the Washington Monument followed by
the Capitol and finally the White House. The weather was marvelous
this day. In the afternoon I visited the Lincoln Memorial
and the to the Potomac river, where I had a very good view onto the
landing aircrafts at Washington Reagan National airport.
After I made some photos I returned to my hotel in the evening. A
highlight of the next day was the Air and Space Museum.
The next stop was at the FBI Building, unfortunately there a no more
tours through the building. In the evening I took my
camera and made some pictures from Washington by night. The Washington
Monument and the capitol looked very good
with all light on.
Here some pictures from Washington ...
that the Washington Reagan National airport is located direct in town.
All landings at this 2 days in Washington
were made at runway 19, so I hade a good view to the approaching aircrafts
along he Potomac River.
Da der Flughafen Reagan National direkt in der Stadt gelegen war,
habe ich natürlich auf zahlreiche Bilder davon gemacht.
Da alle Landungen auf Runway 19 durchgeführt wurden, hatte ich
entlang des Potomac Rivers eine sehr gute Fotoposition.
