A Sunrise In South Florida as We Fly Up the Coast to the Nation’s Capital

This morning I decided to fly from Fort Myers, FL (RSW) up to Reagan National in Washington D.C. (DCA) I took off just after 7:00 AM as the sun rose in Fort Myers and after flying for an 1 hour and a half I flew the famous River Visual into Runway 19. I used the JetBlue E190 which is used in real life. Total flight time was 1 hour 53 minutes

Please let me know your thoughts, and I would seriously recommend trying the River Visual!
