Falcon Virgo

Air Force Memorial Dedication Flyover
Originally uploaded by whiteknuckled

According to the AP wire – and confirmed by some noise heard by yours truly out in Vienna this morning – the DC area will be subjected to Falcon Virgo. What’s that, you say? It’s an air exercise that refines NORAD’s interception and identification operations.

And it’ll be noisy from all the jets zooming past. Too bad today will be cloudy; might have been some good sky weather to catch some military jets in action. Oh well.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
