    Default A bit of plane spotting

    A bit of plane spotting as planes were landing at Reagan National.


















    And a US Airways Embraer 190 in New Orleans.

    Good stuff. They all appear to be banking right quite far down the approach, wonder what the procedure for that particular runway is or if it's just coincidence?

    It would appear to be the visual approach for runway 19, where the planes fly along the river before turning right at the George Mason Memorial Bridge, where I-395 is, and where I was when the shots were taken. Planes can't make a straight in towards the runway, as that would put the plane into restricted airspace by the Washington Monument.
