I was walking home today,and just before 8pm,around 7:50,i saw a VERY low United airlines 747-400 flying slowly,no more than 1000ft above the ground above the houses.It was flying east,and made a slight turn to the southeast.were located 20 miles northwest of the center of DC,about 20-30 miles north/northeast of Dulles.i have no idea why it was flying so low,but with the info i gave out,can any1 explain it?

I fly in and out of IAD a few times a week. The arrivals at IAD esp. from the south fly low for a LONG time before they land. I believe this has alot to do with the other DC area airports...esp the East/West traffic. We are in a southernly operation today, so he was probably on a long final, they do fly at like 2000 for a while, not unusual. What is unusual is the 20 MIT restrictions today for traffic departing to the NE. Making long taxi delays at all of the ZDC and ZNY airports.

Sometimes we don't realize the good times when we're in them
