DCA Planespotting - May 25th, 2018 - Summer Sunset Planespotting

I've been sitting on a huge backlog of personal photos I've been working through; this set of plane spotting photos from Gravelly Point were edited and completed within a week of me shooting them, but somehow I forgot to get them online.  So here are some highlights for you to enjoy - some Summer sunset planespotting for you.

Lufthansa 747-8i at Dulles

Lufthansa recently became the first carrier to add Boeing's new 747-8i, the newest and largest variant of the legendary 747 jumbo jet, to their air fleet.  Washington Dulles International Airport and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority invited fifty lucky guests to welcome the historic, first commercial flight to the North American continent from a vantage point aside the runway.  Guests were thrilled to see airport operations from the closest safe threshold on the active runway. The entire set of photos can be seen on my Flickr, here.
