When pilots and aviation enthusiasts find themselves in Washington, D.C., they often plan a trip to the Mall to visit the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. But those who love the skies might also want to walk directly across the Mall and visit the National Gallery of Art, where we recommend taking a look at one of our favorite paintings: Peter Paul Rubens's The Fall of Phaeton. This piece of Baroque art speaks powerfully to aviators, as it shows what happens if the rules of the sky are disregarded.
