Washington Dulles International Airport is one of the three major airports that transports passengers into and out of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. The beauty of the site is admired not only by millions who arrive and leave the area, but by local residents as well. After an extensive study of three separate locations in Virginia, Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower agreed to the Chantilly site and later chose to rename the world's first jet airport after his former secretary of state, John Foster Dulles. Renowned architect Eero Saarinen designed the magnificent building that serves as a gateway in and out of the United States. Today, the once peaceful farming area and small villages have turned into a fast-paced business world filled with thousands of new homes and residents.

Smithsonian description:
The historic Pan-American Goodwill Flight of 1926 and 1927 through Mexico and Central and South America was intended to improve relations with Latin American countries, to encourage commercial aviation, and to provide valuable training for Air Corps personnel. The flight was made by ten pilots in five Loening OA-1A amphibian aircraft. To stimulate public interest, each airplane was named after a major U.S. city-the New York, the San Antonio, the San Francisco, the Detroit, and the St. Louis.

The 35,200 km (22,000 mi) flight began on December 21, 1926, from San Antonio, Texas. The journey took 59 flying days, interspersed with 74 days for scheduled maintenance and diplomatic meetings and ceremonies. The flight concluded at Bolling Field in Washington, D.C., on May 2, 1927. Within three weeks, however, the impressive achievement was eclipsed by Lindbergh's solo trans-Atlantic flight in the Spirit of St. Louis.

The San Francisco was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution by the War Department in December 1927. It was restored by the National Air and Space Museum in 1964-1965.

United flight 7832 at Dulles airport

My flight was originally scheduled to depart Dulles for the hour long trip at 8:30am, but kept getting pushed back and back and back because nobody could be bothered to unfreeze the plane which had apparently "frozen the door shut" over the previous night.

I suppose limited staff and a multitude of aircraft needing attention would naturally force a delay in takeoff, but we didn't actually leave Dulles until 3:20pm, almost seven hours late. Many, many other planes left long before us that were originally schedule to depart only an hour after our planned departure. What made this most irritating is that the previous night I declined an offer to give up my seat in San Francisco for a later flight (which would have rewarded me with a free hotel room, a good night's sleep, $400 in travel credit, and an upgrade to business class on the next flight out) since I needed to be back at work the next day. If I'd accepted the offer I still would have arrived in time to depart on this infernal connecting flight.

Transportation in Loudoun County, Virginia: Washington Dulles International Airport, Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 33. Chapters: Washington Dulles International Airport, Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park, Virginia State Route 267, U.S. Route 340 in Virginia, Virginia State Route 620, Virginia State Route 7, U.S. Route 15 in Virginia, Virginia State Route 28, U.S. Route 50 in Virginia, Virginia State Route 606, Snicker's Gap Turnpike, Virginia State Route 9, White's Ferry, Leesburg Executive Airport, Virginia State Route 287, Virginia State Route 659, Loudoun County Parkway, Point of Rocks Bridge, Leesburg Bypass, Virginia State Route 209, Route 772, Loudoun County Commuter Bus. Excerpt: The Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park is a popular and unusually-shaped regional park in Northern Virginia. The park's primary feature is the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail (abbreviated as W&OD Trail), an asphalt-surfaced paved rail trail that runs through densely populated urban and suburban communities as well as through rural areas. Most of the trail travels on top of the rail bed of the former Washington and Old Dominion Railroad, which closed in 1968. Although the park is 44.8 miles (72.1 km) long, it is only about 100 feet (30 m) wide. The rail trail is approximately 10 feet (3.0 m) wide through much of its length and is suitable for walking, running, cycling, and roller skating. A crushed bluestone surfaced bridle path travels near the paved trail in the park's most westerly 32 miles (51 km). The Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NVRPA) administers and maintains the park and its trails. NVRPA keeps most of the parkland surrounding the trails in a natural state. The park authority has placed alongside the paved trail a series of mile markers and a number of interpretative exhibits that describe the historic and natural features of the park (see Washington and Old Dominion Railroad#Stations for locations of...
