I’ve flown enough over the years that I’m really not all that interested in window seats. I much prefer being able to move around whenever I want, rather than being able to look out the window. The one exception is when I’m flying into Washington National. A straight approach would take you over the White House, which of course is controlled airspace. So instead, the plane approaches from the west and makes a sharp turn just before landing. And when it does, you get the absolutely best views of the mall. Of course, it all depends which way the wind is blowing, but on this trip I was in luck.
Once I’m in the window seat, I can’t resist taking a picture of the sunset.
