Potomac by Air: Our Nation's River

Episode 1 of 1

POTOMAC BY AIR: OUR NATION'S RIVER explores the nation's history through an aerial trip along the striking curves of the Potomac River, accompanied by an uplifting musical soundtrack and pleasing narration that describes natural historical and cultural points of interest along the way. Beginning in West Virginia, the fly over pledge event captures the flow of the Potomac River as it rapidly descends through the Appalachian Mountains into the Piedmont region of Maryland, then proceeds south past the Great Falls into the nation's capital, before ending in the Chesapeake Bay. The program provides viewers with a scenic journey of the river's natural and man-made history along with America's remarkable collection of monuments and memorials-from the Washington Monument to the White House and more. Stunning, low-altitude high-definition footage of the river is complemented by day and evening shots of the Capitol, Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, and other landmarks.
