Wanna know how you can tell if someone has been around the DC area? Those of us who have been here a while call it National and drop the Reagan.
Does anyone besides me see the irony in ramming Regan's name down the local people's throat, seeing how he was for the federal government staying out of local affairs? Or the irony of naming an airport, given his firing of the PATCO employees?
oops....you are right....i wanted to clarify. Ive probably been underneath you doug on more than one occasion. I used to play rugby at gravely point....aproach end landing to the south. What an awesome sight to stand ther next to the localizer antenna and look the pilots in the eye. I hjave to admit, i have heard a few pilots call "reagan tower" on my scanner...and it does sound weird.
