Headed down the to the mall today to shot the flyover. It was sunny with no clouds so not the best conditions to get pictures. They were overhead for only seconds. I was hoping to get a shot with the Washington Monument in the background but without knowing the fly track or exact schedule it was touch.

Shot with the fly is nice though.

For those that know Downtown DC these were shot from next to the Reflecting Pool closer to WWII Memorial.

I particularly like numbers 3 and 4. So you didn't get the monument, but you did get some keepers! Nice work!




You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

I agree, 3 and 4 are awesome.

Those last 2 shots are super cool! You can see how incredibly amazing their formations are, alignment within inches. Awesome!!

Thanks for sharing! I was hoping they'd fly over my little part of Texas, and they actually did! I don't think it was part of the show but we had several touch and go's at the local muni airport!
