This flyby will give you a closeup view of the Pentagon. One of the largest buildings in the world, it houses the complete administrative staffs of the entire U.S. military establishment.

Note the lie of the Washington Monument in relation to your flight path, because after you pass over the Pentagon, you are to land again on that specific area of the Mall you studied in the last flight, with another delivery packet. Not as easy this time. (Use right side views to check out the area.)
