Washington Dulles Aircraft Spotting

My trip for the MLK weekend had a very big aviation bulb on it.

The JetBlue one is an E-190, and behind it I think is an Avianca A321…

They fly everywhere.
Honestly. Go on Flightradar24, it’s filled with Copa planes.

Glad you enjoyed your stay in NOVA. The drivers and “people” that live around here make me wanna end myself. Seriously I don’t think you’ll find ruder people in the world. Anyway, you missed an opportunity to go spot at Gravely Point! It’s right under Run way 19 for KDCA.

Nice Lufthansa 747-8!
I didn’t know they flew into Washington

They have 74 destinations in all America 😂

I have no doubt that they would do well if they just buy a couple 767s or something, to fly to Europe.

Yeah…but they’re focused in America, anyway they have codeshare agreements with KLM and Air France and with the airlines of Star Alliance, but operate their own flights to Europe ain’t a bad idea.

I think another great place to spot is at the Ruth Chris steakhouse across the street from KDCA. It’s in the top floor of a high rise building and overlooks the entire airport. Beautiful views. Also at Dulles…if you go to the air and space museum near the airport they have a atc tower you can go up in and watch the planes take off/land from. Another good view. And the traffic…I drive from just south of bwi to Fairfax 2x/week for work…35 miles. I can vouch…It’s awful.

Yep. But if you walk into Ruth Chris you pay a $25 entree fee because Ruth Chris (I kid)

If you eat at Ruth’s Chris, you’re rich.
