No Heroes In ADIZ Incursion

By ANN Senior Correspondent Kevin R.C. "Hognose" O'Brien I wasn't flying Wednesday when the city of Washington went into a massive, hyperventilating panic over a light plane in the ADIZ; I was driving the highways, and I got to hear the blow-by-blow on the radio and in periodic phone calls with ANN's Pete Combs.

Source: AOPA President Phil Boyer, understandably venting after a Cessna 150K blew through the Washington ADIZ Wednesday, coming within three miles of the White House. The pilots told federal investigators they were lost. On board, they had no GPS and were not talking to anyone on the radio. As a result of the incursion, efforts to narrow the ADIZ and reopen Reagan National Airport to business aviation traffic may have been set back by months.
