So, I get out of a quick meeting with a boss, just to rush out to the River Entrance in the hopes of catching a glimpse of the Space Shuttle Discovery's piggy-back fly-by of the National Capitol Region. As I exit, the 747/Discovery combo, with a T-38 chase, is literally 1/2 mile away from the Pentagon, heading right for us at 1000 feet! Flew RIGHT OVER our position 15 seconds after I just stepped outside! What an AWESOME sight! The "airshow" came back around a few more times, passing over the Capitol Building, Arlington Cemetary, and the National Mall in seperate passes. Awe inspiring! (And here I am without my cell phone to take a picture! It's locked away by my vault and I didn't have time to retrieve it! ) So many great sights, but the best drew me and the others around me into "OOhs" and "Ahhs" as it's flight path took it multiple time in line of sight with the US Flag in front of us multiple times (What a great photo op that was! Dang it!) Then I had to go back inside to the land of powerpoint briefs and e-mails. The whole shooting match should have flown by our house on it's way to Dulles (we live under the approach pattern); I let her know it was supposed to happen today, but she didn't seem that interested. Silly Pima!
