If you see ambulances, fire trucks, helicopters and boats Saturday rushing to Ronald Reagan National Airport, don’t be concerned—the “plane crash” is part of a scheduled training exercise.
While the training exercise is not open to the public for viewing, it's likely people in Northern Virginia may see (and hear) part of the response between 8:30 a.m. to noon this Saturday.
Volunteers will play the role of injured passengers and a training aircraft will be on fire as part of the exercise. The "injured" passengers will be rushed to local hospitals in DC, Arlington and Alexandria.
That leads the daily digest of headlines from around our Patches in Virginia and Washington, DC. That and more below.
