Flying over lower Manhattan

Last week I got a chance to fly over lower Manhattan. I was flying from Washington Dulles (IAD) to LaGuardia and the plan had to go around Manhattan for a Southwards landing into LaGuardia. It was a perfect opportunity to get a picture of the Freedom Tower which had just received its Spire. I also got a great shot of the USS Intrepid. You can see the Concorde there on the pier. Does anyone know if the Space Shuttle is there too? Could not see it from the air.

Enjoy. If you have any pictures (from the air) of the Freedom tower, do share.

  1. You certainly didn’t see the Concorde on the deck. It’s on the pier, next to the Intrepid. The shuttle is on the deck next to that white tent on the tip of the carrier.

  2. Great photo! Just read today that the Space Shuttle Pavilon is set to re-open (after damage from Hurricane Sandy)on July 10th. I can’t wait to visit!

  3. Great shots. Just wanted to point out that the inane ‘Freedom Tower’ moniker has officially been dropped in favor of ‘One World Trade Center’.
