Today since DCA is open and PHL are open I decided to try the River Visual across the Potomac! It was a very short hop in the historic American tricolor livery! Learns more about DCA here: How to DCA
Let’s dive into more of the details!
KPHL - KDCA
Aircraft in use
737-800 ( American Tricolor )
Let’s see some pictures!
At gate B16 in a busy Philadelphia!
Just after takeoff the Delaware River is visible to the left! It would be cool if they added a river visual into Philly.
A huge moonshot over Northern Maryland as approach checklist begins in the cockpit!
“I have a visual on the runway!” As the river visual into DCA starts!
It’s as scary as it looks!
A quick turn onto short final runway 19!
Nasty crosswinds call for some over corrections on short final!
The beautiful tricolor bulleting down to runway 19!
Taxing to gate with a humid DC behind me!
A final tail shot of the iconic “AA” tail, while the plane unloads in DCA!
I hope you enjoyed my trip!
