Kingston–Rhinecliff Bridge
The Kingston Bridge on Final Approach to Kingston-Ulster Airport on the Hudson River, NY

This is a really neat approach or take off as you fly right OVER the bridge - and I mean CLOSE.

Next time you are up in this area, give landing there a try as the first time will give you the illusion you are right in traffic landing on the bridge!

The foot of the bridge actually TURNS to accommodate the airport! This is one of the most scenic and interesting approaches you will do.

Kingston Airport is home to those who fly up the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in this area. Land here to go see the show, and then you will DRIVE on this bridge and see it from the surface as well.

Backgrounder:

The Kingston–Rhinecliff Bridge or George Clinton Memorial Bridge is a continuous under-deck truss bridge that carries NY 199 across the Hudson River in New York State north of the City of Kingston and the hamlet of Rhinecliff. It was opened to traffic on February 2, 1957 as a two-lane (one in each direction) bridge, although it was not actually complete. Formal opening was May 11, 1957. The original cost was $17.5 million.

The bridge, owned by the New York State Bridge Authority (NYSBA), carries two lanes of traffic and approximately 17,000 vehicles per day. It was designed by David B. Steinman and the builders were Harris Structural Steel and Merritt-Chapman & Scott Corporation, and is the second northernmost, and second newest, of the 5 bridges that NYSBA owns and operates. The bridge has two main spans, since there is an east and west channel in the Hudson River at this point.
