    I saw it fly over Broad Run High School at about 9:20. Then again about 10:45 as it headed north in a fly by Dulles. Awesome site as it banked to the west with the T-38 escort. Can't wait to see it up close.

    'pics or it didn't happen' is online joke... stabbing at the pessimism seen in online discussions when posters make claims of something happening.

    I know that Steve. Sometimes people respond with sarcastic humor to add to the online joke feature. :)

    Watched it from our parking lot at work in Chantilly. It went right down 28, 3 times. It was pretty cool.

    Although I saw the plane do a flyby near my company on the way into the office, it was flying TOO low on the 2nd and 3rd go around for my co-workers and I to see it. We all were bummed over it. The wife and daughter got into the Udvar-Hazy center VERY early in the AM and got prime spots next to the TV Vans....Saw the pic she took and my jaw dropped two miles long....Was so jealous of her and folks back around Broadlands that saw the plane close up. Lucky ducks.
