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.


Mobile Posting

I'm not persuaded: ORIGINAL MSG: (Blogger Mobile Post) Your carrier is not supported by Blogger Mobile. Please try using Mail-to-Blog. . . .

Well, I changed my mind. I can't post to the mobile blog; I can't send pictures to BLOGGR or whatever, and "go@blogger.com" results in the above message being sent to me again. Oh, well: Virgin Mobile isn't usually kind to me, anyway.
