FAA will suspend flight operation at Washington DCA

Americas Independent Day Holiday on July 4 this year will mean to celebrate the military might of this country. Some say this year means the United States is celebrating Donald Trump. Senator Brian Schatz from Hawaii warned.”July 4 is about celebrating our country, not our President. Our national holidays must be left alone,”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)  announced Tuesday it will suspend operations at Ronald Reagan National Airport just outside Washington, D.C., on the Fourth of July to accommodate aspects of President Trump‘s “Salute to America” event.

The agency said in a statement that operations at the Arlington, Va., airport will cease from 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on Thursday while a military flyover takes place.

Operations will again be impacted from 9 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. during an extended fireworks show, the FAA said. The launch point for the fireworks has been changed to accommodate Trump’s speech at the Lincoln Memorial

Medical and emergency flights will be authorized as necessary, the agency said. Baltimore/Washington International and Dulles International Airport will not be affected

Visitors from all over the world are expected to travel to Washington DC and join the celebrations.
