On Friday 15 September 2017 at 05.00 we met at the familiar meeting point at Schiphol. One fellow traveller would join us at Heathrow, so we were complete quickly. After a prosperous check in our plane left for Heathrow, after which we embarked our British Airways Boeing 747 to Washington DC. We arrived in time in Washington. After picking up our three cars we were on our way to Ronald Reagan Air Field. Here we were able to photograph our first military aircraft: two MH-65D Dauphins of the USCG. To kill the time, we enjoyed an hour at the landing/departure spot and those interested in civilian aircraft were able to photograph some interesting aircraft. The weather was good, so we decided to go sightseeing. We visited the White House and some other points of interest. After a quick bite we left for our hotel near Andrews AFB.
