Chesapeake Bay Bridge, near Annapolis, MD
FLY over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge!

Really easy to do inside or outside the SFRA while VFR.

Just be careful of the Class B of BWI and the SFRA ring, and you are good to go. Various airports to fly to and eat, including Bay Bridge (the nearest one), Kentmorr, and Annapolis.

Magnificent vistas in this area of natural beauty of water, beaches, sea life, ships and planes! Bring your camera!

Another great place to see here on the east coast!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight of Central PA

Background:


The Chesapeake Bay Bridge (commonly known as the "Bay Bridge") is a major dual-span bridge in the U.S. state of Maryland. Spanning the Chesapeake Bay, it connects the state's rural Eastern Shore region with the urban Western Shore.

The original span opened in 1952 and with a length of 4.3 miles (6.9 km), was the world's longest continuous over-water steel structure; the parallel span was added in 1973. The bridge is officially named the "Gov. William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial Bridge" after William Preston Lane, Jr. who, as the 52nd Governor of Maryland, initiated its construction in the late 1940s finally after decades of political indecision and public controversy.

The bridge is part of U.S. Routes 50 and 301, and serves as a vital link in both routes. As part of cross-country U.S. Route 50, it connects the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area with Ocean City, Maryland and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and other coastal tourist resorts destinations.

As part of U.S. Route 301, it serves as part of an alternate route for Interstate 95 travelers, between northern Delaware and the Washington, D.C. area. Because of this linkage, the bridge is busy and has become known as a point of traffic congestion, particularly during peak hours and summer months.
