As we stood in front of Pho 75 on Friday, full from the delicious noodle soup, a plane went screaming overheard at just the wrong angle to freak me out a bit. They’ve changed the flight path of planes from over the river to right through lower Courthouse and upper Rosslyn. Passenger jets streak through the evening sky drowning out conversations in the outside tables at the bistro next door, and forcing everyone to stare up.
No, it’s not terrorism, it’s just a changed flight route that’s taking passenger jets over the residential neighborhoods of Arlington instead of over the river as usual.
