I saw one of these over Front Royal, VA this afternoon about 1 PM. At first I thought it was a balloon or blimp because it just seemed to hang there; I didn't think anything that big could move that slowly. It was within the air control area of Dulles Int'l airport. Is there some kind of airshow this weekend? Or maybe it was returning from an airshow elsewhere. Its course was south; maybe it was returning from Dayton, OH? It had four engines and the wingtips were rounded off from leading edge to trailing edge. Can't think of anything else it might be except a B-17.
Daguerre is credited with inventing photography in the early 19th century. Then someone makes this nice monument to him. Wouldn't a photograph be better? Anyway, then I come along and take a photograph of a sculpture of the inventor of photography...using a digital camera. Very confusing.
