first off, floods suck. But the intense weather we're having has left us with lots of atmospheric effects with the planes landing at National. So, I took a swing by Gravelly Point on my way home yesterday, and this is what I found. LOTS of vortices trailing! Some 757s left trains of vortices that lasted nearly a whole minute after the plane had already landed!
Anyway, here are 5 of the shots (more on the way). If anyone has thoughts on improvements, I'd welcome your comments. Thanks in advace!
This last one is just for fun - not looking to get this accepted (unless you know some miracle editing). I was shocked this plane attempted to land. The next 3 went around. Note the wall of water this plane met at the threshold - believe it or not, it wasn't raining where I stood.
