A headache on Va.'s Orange Line

There won't be any Metro service between East Falls Church and West Falls Church stations Memorial Day weekend and the first two weekends in June due to construction on the Silver Line extension to Dulles. Metro will operate shuttles between the stations, but it will add to your travel time -- at least 30 minutes. Will this affect you? Had you planned to take Metro and then the Washington Flyer to get to Dulles? Let us know what you plan to do by sending an e-mail to transportation@washpost.com or posting a comment below....

NTSB: Dulles fire linked to heater

Investigators say a cockpit fire that forced a United Airlines flight to make an emergency landing at Dulles International Airport was concentrated in a piece of window-heating equipment that was the subject of a safety warning three years ago.

NTSB begins air safety forum

The National Transportation Safety Board began a three-day "Professionalism in Aviation" safety forum Tuesday at its L'Enfant Plaza headquarters in Washington. The forum, which is open to the public, is focusinig on success stories, such as US Airways Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who ditched his Airbus A320 into New York's Hudson River last year -- and saved dozens of lives. But the impetus for it is a series of high-profile incidents in which the conduct and judgment of pilots and controllers have been called into question.

Fire at National causes flight delays

Airport officials say a small fire at a Reagan National Airport terminal has caused some minor flight delays. Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokeswoman Courtney Mickalonis said the fire broke out inside a McDonald's restaurant past the security checkpoint about 3 p.m. Monday. Mickalonis said the airport fire department extinguished it within a few minutes. She says she doesn't know what caused the fire.

Ash may disrupt summer travel

It's been a month now, and Iceland's volcano shows no sign it will stop belching ash across Europe anytime soon. The rolling eruptions threaten more havoc for summer vacation plans. Jose Luis Barrera, deputy president of Spain's College of Geologists, said Europe should get ready for ash-covered inconvenience at least through the summer -- and perhaps longer. He noted that the volcano's last eruption ran from 1821 to 1823.
