Cruising Altitude: 16,000 Feet



16,000 feet
The views at only 16,000 feet cruising altitude 
are simply incredible.  Especially during a stormy/sunny day.
My seat was just behind the wing and I 
was continually turning around to snap the sky view. 
The guy behind me must have thought I was nuts!
Who in their right mind takes a bajillion photos on a plane ride???
Well...ME!!

Thunderheads...
We were delayed for nearly two hours at take-off. And then all 
the way down to Dulles we wove in and out of thunderheads. 
 Several times, we flew through the more tame ones...much to 
my stomach's lurching...me a good flyer - not so much!
But, OH, the skies were spectacular!

  9. 16,000 feet is a great altitude for photos. Not so much for the stomach! Nice post!

  14. Have you ever flown with (or was seated next to) someone who NEVER looks out the window? I just don't understand such people...
