The Horseshoe

I flew over campus today for the sole purpose of taking pictures of The Shoe. That puts the plane directly in the departure/approach path of the big boys landing at Port Columbus Intl. (KCMH) so I had to work with Columbus Approach to make sure no one knocked my wings off. Got one full circuit around the stadium before bugging out to farmland to the west.

The Olentangy River is running north-to-south along the west side of the stadium and 315 is the highway just to the west of that. There’s a dark block-O on top of a roof just to the south-east of the stadium. (Slightly above and to the left) Maybe someone can comment on exactly what building that is. I think maybe the RPAC?

There’s a lacrosse game going on inside the stadium at the time of these pictures; only moderately attended. If there were another thousand people or so in the stands I would have had to fly another 2,000 feet higher.

One thought on “The Horseshoe”

  1. Yep, the building with the dark roof and block O is the RPAC, the main gym. You can see the “scarlet walkway” along the northern side of the building.
