Short Final At Reagan National

I had some free time yesterday before my flight back to Milwaukee, so I found a park just off the end of Runway 19 at Reagan National Airport. In order to land on DCA's southbound runway, pilots had to follow the path of the Potomac River and make a steep turn shortly before landing, in a procedure called the "River Visual." It was a perfect place to do some planespotting.

Last week I had the pleasure of being seated on the left side of the plane and caught this image of the National Mall just prior to landing.
