The Famous Potomac Approach

This message is from a Virgin Mobile user. Enjoy.

Landing at Reagan National Airport just outside Washington, DC (in Arlington, Virginia) is achieved via the famous "Potomac Approach." I have watched in person many times over a number of years, and have seen a film (simulation) on the subject almost as often in The Air & Space Museum in The Smithsonian Institution.

In a celebratory mood and with a little libation I joked with an American pilot that he might let me "bring her in" next time.

He didn't seem to have much in the way of a sense of humor, but the obstruction was sufficient.
