DCA 75th Anniversary

Happy Birthday, Ronald Reagan National Airport!  On this day, June 16th, 75 years ago, Washington National Airport (as it was originally named) opened its doors in 1941.  American Airlines was its first air carrier; a tradition that was repeated on this, DCA's 75th Anniversary, by American celebrating their aviation heritage with swing dancers, and uniforms in period American Airlines uniforms to match the Douglas DC-3 aircraft on display outside of the Historic Lobby.

In the afternoon, passengers enjoyed music by The Adrian Duke Project.

And of course I can't resist a few selfies when being part of something so cool - A huge thank you to Rob Yingling for taking these photos of me in and around the DC-3!
