Only fly in Unrestricted Airspace

This just in from the Associated Press:

Pilots flew into restricted airspace 3,400 times across the country in the three years following the Sept. 11 attacks, according to a congressional report that says the government needs to better coordinate its response to such violations.

3,400 times, eh? That’s around one hundred violations a month, or at least three a day. Wow! I would hate to be a pilot these days. If you even come close to DC you can get your very own F-16 escort to Frederick, MD and cause an evacuation of the Capitol.

Lucky for me, I’m not a pilot, no I’m a writer here on and tonight we’re celebrating one year of Unrestricted Airspace! So stop reading & start drinking!
