The oh dear me: "An electrical failure at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport interrupted flights and prompted additional security measures for a short time Monday, airport officials said."
A ground halt from 1225 to 1327 today. That had to hurt. US Airways has what seems like minute by minute flights in and out of DCA, as do a good many other carriers, especially from state capitals.
The word is that a piece of equipment within the airport failed and caused the problem.
I prefer to believe that an al Quaida operative working out of Siler City was responsible for sending in a pidgeon bomb.
