Drone sighting causes flight delays, cancellations at Reagen Washington National Airport

Reuters reports that Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) halted flights into and out of Reagan Washington National Airport for about 13 minutes on 21 July after a drone sighting was reported.

“The FAA said it immediately notified law enforcement and said operations have resumed but there were some residual delays. The FAA did not immediately respond to a question about whether the drone or the operator was located,” said the report.

CNN correspondent Pete Muntean tweeted the ATCSCC advisory:

Reuters reported that the FlightAware.com tracking service said 90 flights at National had been delayed, or 20%, and seven were cancelled.
