Horseshoe Curve Railroad Engineering Marvel
See the amazing Horseshoe Curve Engineering Marvel from the air! Flying over this railroad curve, the only one like it in the world, provides you a unique perspective of the site.  Located just 5-6 miles north of this turf field, Blue Knob Valley Airport, the Curve is easy to find once you spot the lakes/holding ponds inside the curve. You may get lucky enough to see a train passing through!  The Curve is just a few miles west of Altoona in PA. This is a great site to see from the air! Additionally, there are many wind-turbine generators on the top of the mountains around the Curve. Have fun and bring your camera for this one!
