Hey mcbear. Be sure to remember where you parked.

You're getting the Cub detailed for the event aren't you?

I hope the valet parking gives you a good spot near the entrance.

Dulles To Close Runway For Private Jet Parking

DULLES, Va. (WUSA) -- Most people fly on commercial airplanes. But starting this weekend, hundreds of private jets carrying VIPs, and lots of celebrities, will be coming to town.

"It's supposed to look like the Oscars! I think it's crazy. All the people coming to town... amazing!" says Debbie Dailey of Centreville.

But where to park all those private planes is a problem.

Dulles International Airport Manager Chris Browne says, "We expect an larger number of private aircraft than any other inauguration, about 500 over a period of three to four days."

But Dulles Airport has a ready-made solution. In November, Dulles opened a fourth runway that is only used in the afternoon. It's far from capacity. Now... it will be a parking lot. For private jets. Browne says taking the runway out of service temporarily will NOT impact general aviation.

He says by being able to consolidate the parking of the private jets in one place, it will make the servicing of those jets more efficient.

Reagan National Airport limits private jets coming in and will not be taking in more than usual.

Both airports and BWI are expecting heavy use Sunday and Monday, and especially the day after when every one leaves on the same day. Similar to the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

On inauguration day, it will be nearly impossible to drive to at National Airport. Unless you're in a taxi, bus, hired limo, or SuperShuttle. That's because the GW parkway will be closed to general traffic. The only way in will the Route one, and that's likely to be jammed.

Tara Hamilton says you can still take Metro, cabs, and authorized vehicles on the G.W. But, the best advice if you need to get to or from a local airport, is to have a plan.

I sold the 182 last year so, no shining up for the big shindig.

But, I never worried, I always had one of those cool little antenna balls stuck on the 2m antenna so I could spot myself in a crowd.

Now I just use it at concours events to confuse the folks that wonder if it is OEM.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
