A lot of airports have places where people go to watch the planes. Washington National Airport has a park near one end of its runway called Gravelly Point.
We had a little MEETinDC gathering there to take pictures of the planes as they were coming in for a landing. And they were coming in low right over our heads. Very loudly.
It was an extremely hot and humid day. My friend Cat and I almost collapsed on the walk up the Mt. Vernon Trail from the National Airport Metro stop. But, thankfully, our MEETin buddies were set up in a shady spot.
