NORAD exercise planned for area skies early Tuesday

From the Associated Press: North American Aerospace Defense Command is planning exercise flights over the Washington area to begin around midnight and continue into the early hours of Tuesday.

NORAD says people can expect to hear and see fighter aircraft, Civil Air Patrol aircraft, and Coast Guard helicopters.

If the weather is bad, the exercise will be postponed a day.

I am so grateful for this. If they had to have an exercise in "bad weather" NORAD would be totally unprepared for sunny daytime wars.
