My class took a trip to DC, we were from Wisconsin, so we departed from ORD-IAD via UA 382. And back via DCA-ORD on UA631. It was a fun trip, and i had never flown UA before, so that was interesting. All pics from a Nikon Coolpix P4

UA 382
Boeing 737-500

737-500 (my plane) at gate C28, Couldn't get the registration, sadly.

N197UA being towed to the gate

Banking Shortly after takeoff

Overview of ORD

Shortly after climbing through some clouds

Cruising at FL370

Descending through a large cloud cover

Exiting the cloud cover, which was very low

Seconds from touch down

Reverse thrust and spoilers are active, sorry for the low quality, window had lots of rain on it

While taxiing i saw this beauty

At the Gate

UA 631
Airbus A320-200

Airbus A320 (My plane) at gate C19 i believe

The flight before ours back to ORD

One of the better pictures i have ever taken. Other than the minor reflection in the window   (Sorry that it is crooked)

Holding short of runway 1 along with a Delta Connection E170

Shortly after takeoff with the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Capital (Sorry about the bluriness)

FL320 on a gorgeous spring day

Downtown Chicago with some slight blur

Closing in on Runway 22R

Seconds from touch down with some intense blur

Reverse thrust and spoilers deployed

Parked at gate C19

It was a wonderful trip, but after flying both a 737 and A320 on the same trip i thought the 737 was more comfortable, it had a little bit wider seats and it was a lot quieter! the noise on the A320 was really loud when compared to the 737. I thought i t was interesting that i ended up on 2 planes both with the old livery.

I hope you enjoy my pictures

I hope you had lots of fun in DC. I was lucky enough to grow up near DC. I always enjoyed going to see the museums and the monuments.

God bless through Jesus, Jeff

Nice TR dude - I love Dc it's a great town.
one thing though, are you sure you have got the A320 and 737 the right way round? The A320 has the wider cabin and seats and is far quieter than the 737 classics. Although it could be that the seats a uses make the ones on the 737 see wider and that your location in the cabin made the 737 seem quieter than the 320....

Very nice trip report and pictures!!! You're lucky you got to fly, I'm from Racine and 3 years ago when our class went to DC we had to mount up in the coach bus for 12 hours each way overnight. Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep on either...

Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

I actually think i thought that because of where i sat, i sat one row from the back on the 735 and 2 behind the exit row on the A320

Either way, both are great planes!

Nice TR and I really enjoyed the pics of the ORD landing. The motion blur is kind of cool!
