Spotting Runway 01 at KDCA (Ronald Reagan National) 08/23/18

Hello Community, I just got back form spotting at KDCA from Gravelly Point. I expected to only see ERJs CRJs and a few 737s and A319s, but I ended up also seeing a 757 which I was very surprised. At first, I thought it was a medical emergency because I saw what seemed like police or ambulance lights but it turned out it was a real flight from KDEN. Also, note this is my first plane spotting post and first plane spotting with this camera so some pictures are not the best.

Equipment: Canon EOS Rebel T6 and Canon EF 75-300mm Lense

To clarify, am I mistaken in saying that runway 1 is opposite the more famous Gravely Point?

Because runway 1 would be pointing north I think, but you say you were Spotting at gravely point, I am a bit confused…

You are correct, I put 1 because that was the Runway being used. Should I put… 19?

Ah, makes sense. I was gona say I thought Gravely was off 13 correct? Pretty cool place though. Never been actually when they were departing over your head, only approaching overhead…

Yes, you should go if you ever have the chance. I couldn’t image how loud it would be if it wasn’t only regional aircraft… well there was a 757, but I didn’t see it depart only land.

Yep, I think their are only 2 753 flights to DCA a day, I saw the one from KDEN. I think the other one is KSFO.
