Objects are farther than they appear

It felt like we could reach out and touch them.

Gravelly Point Park is a spot in Arlington, literally at the end of the runways of Reagan National Airport. Planes like the one in picture above flew directly over our heads as they approached the runway for landing.

The most amazing thing was the noise created by the wingtip vortices. A few seconds after the relatively smaller planes flew overhead you could hear swooshing sounds on either side of you, invisible whirlwinds that sounded other worldly.

Watch this video to get an idea of what we experienced. And if you visit us, be sure, you will experience it too.
