He also advised about local / DC rules relating to drones in restricted areas (think Whitehouse). More info is on Zak's web page.

Where NoVaLUG Meets — Tysons Corner

Tysons in the Past

Myers Gas Station was at the intersection of Leesburg Pike and Dolley Madison Boulevard (1930).

The Washington & Old Dominion Railway (W&OD) ran through Tysons in 1941.

Tysons Now

Tysons has developed wildly in the recent past. In addition Tysons Corner shopping mall, many high-tech industries have settled in the Tysons / Dulles corridor. These include major developers and users of open source software, e.g., Red Hat. Commuters now use METRO trains, the elevated tracks of which are visible in this image.

The old W&OD RR is long gone; it's right-of-way now serves as the the W&OD Trail, a bike and walking path from Arlington to Purcellville, VA. 

NoVaLUGers line up for snacks (July, 2019 mtg).
