Monster Plane To Fly Over Washington

By Keith Cowing

Editor’s note: Word has it that an Airbus 380 – which landed at Dulles Airport last night – will be doing a flyover up, down, and around the Potomac and Washington, DC today between 11:15 and 12:30. The idea is to get photos of this uber monster plane set against the U.S. Capitol building – thus rubing our collective noses in this accomplishment (I suppose). Heads Up Lisa Porter – competition overhead!

Editor’s 11:18 am EDT note: I just saw this monster fly over my house (I live close to Dulles) heading Southeast toward Washington. It looks to be the size of a C5A – but much more graceful.
