Press Release - High Flying Athletes Jump Aboard Crystal Flight

Crystal Flight sponsor Archstone will be bringing high flying Washington Wizards players into the flight plan of Crystal City’s six-month Celebration of Flight.

Archstone, an owner and manager of apartment buildings in Crystal City and the metropolitan area, joined the program by sponsoring artist Amy Marshall. After coordinating participation from the Washington Wizards, Archstone worked closely with the artist to develop an artistic treatment to highlight the high-flying action of the team.

Currently being prepared at the Artist Studio in Crystal City, the airplane dubbed “Soar Above the Rim” will be transported to the Washington Wizards facility in downtown DC by Crystal Flight partner JK Moving and Storage, Inc early next week. Washington Wizards players will then autograph the statue decorated with basketballs and player silhouettes.

The BID continues to celebrate other exciting flight-related activities in Crystal City, such as the recent opening of the Boeing retail store and the expanded partnership with the U.S. Air Force and Arlington Sports in hosting the 2nd annual Crystal Ride U.S. Air Force Cycling Classic on May 4, 2008.

Keep up with the excitement around Crystal City and Crystal Flight by visiting the Crystal Flight Blog available at
