View from my window seat

Chicago Skyline, on the approach to O'Hare, we flew over the south side
 since the north side was preparing for the Chicago Air Show. 
Flying does get a bit tiring but the travel is important, both for business and family.  One task that keeps me occupied is watching the view from my window seat.  Luckily, flying on United as a frequent flyer each reservation a window seat is possible.  Often the spectacular views happen during take off or approach to landing.  Flying out of Washington National Airport the wide vistas of the National Mall or The Pentagon are seen.  On the approach to Chicago O'Hare depending upon the flight path, one can catch the magnificent Chicago Skyline.   Although the same scenery is the same, the time, the light, the weather, and season makes each instance magical.
On the departure from Washington National, the National Mall
Washington Monument. Tidal Basin, Jefferson Memorial 
On the approach to Washington National, flew over Dulles.  
Departing Houston, The fire department gave us a water salute.  On the flight
were Special Olympic Athletes on their way to the USA Games.
