On board flight out of #DCA. Still on runway. Flight crew just told us "all planes have been grounded indefinitely." No reason given.@wusa9

Not really. You have to change trains to go from NY to airport. That bungles it up just a bit.

NY is not that easily accessible from airport for an individual running around. Period. From any source.

2 miles up the Anacostia when the area is on alert is a very long trip for a guy to make even with a motor. He’s dead in the water trying that.

But the authorities won’t call it terrorism. I wonder if it’s possible the perps have some manpads from Libya?

I know that the Navy Yard is on the Anacostia River. But I was commenting to someone who thought Reagan National Airport was on the same side of the Potomac river as the Navy Yard. Thus, I said it’s across the Potomac. Sorry about any confusion. Someone in the Navy Yard could fire a missile and hit a plane taking off or landing at Reagan.

I did not say it was on the same side of Potomac. They are far enough apart to be very inconvenient for 1 party to commit multiple attacks in each place, or too far for mere hand-guns to hit a plane. Missiles and rockets are very different from mere bullets.

What are you talking about? The Navy Yard and Bolling AFB are in DC NOT NY, no one was talking about NY. There is a station just up the street from the Navy Yard, so once you get in the station the airport is only a few minutes away.

In this discussion, NY is Navy Yard.

And BTW, my comment still stands. You HAVE TO change trains to go from there to National airport. That really mucks up timing.

Apparently it was a plane burning at/ near gate 9. At least that is what my friend is reporting.

Training?:

think this is all a training exercise. The 'plane' keeps blowing up and being quickly extinguished. I hope one of u will call them out.
