Last weekend was the annual Dulles Day, also known as the Dulles Plane Pull, as teams can compete to pull a 757 and A320 in the shortest time possible, raising money for the Special Olympics. Also, there is a 5K hosted on one of KIAD’s runways, earlier in the morning.

This event also includes many static aircraft displays, stands, and other forms of entertainment. However, one of my favorite things available for event-goers is to plane spot, as this event is hosted right next to runway 1C/19C.
So, when I attended, I brought my camera (Canon EOS Rebel SL1), and snapped some pictures when I wasn’t doing other things.
First up is this Austrian 767-300ER with reg. OE-LAZ greasing on runway 19C.
Next is this incredibly boring Lufthansa A330-300 with registration D-AIKD, arriving from @Moritz’s wunderland (Munich in case you were wondering).
Next is first of two non-heavies in this thread, and it is a Porter Q400 decelerating rapidly, arriving from Toronto Billy Bishop Airport.
The other non-heavy catch is this Avianca A320, with, for some reason, an American registration of N724AV.
An Alitalia A330-200 in the updated livery kisses the concrete, with registration EI-EJK.
This is one of United Star Alliance liveried planes, a 777-200ER. Also arriving from @Moritz’s wunderland.
Here is my favorite aircraft I saw, ANA’s BB8-clad 777-300ER. Pretty neat IMHO.
Saudia 777-300ER right after touching down on 19C, with registration HZ-AK38.
Last, but not least, is this sharp Korean Air 777-300ER moments from hitting the runway, with a registration of HL8347.
And that is the 10 picture limit.
If you are a DC resident, definitely consider coming out to this in the future. It takes place during September, and is great fun, not to mention one of the only airshowish events in the DMV.
Thanks so much for taking a look!
