Approaching Reagan National

It's one the pictures that I always wanted to have, but for quite some time haven't managed to get: an aircraft approaching Reagan National Airport from the North, flying so closely over the commuters at George Washington Parkway that they could almost touch it with their hands:

It's the same situation that has been featured in Gravelly Point, just a few seconds earlier. The scenario is equally impressive, and it's difficult not to be too distracted while driving at 50 mph.

Another GW parkway shot that was difficult to get for similar reasons is showcased in A "Challenging Commute".
