Bush Administration Officials to Testify About Fletcher's Plane
Washington, D.C. – Officials from the Bush Administration are scheduled
to testify before Congress today, regarding problems
encountered when Governor Fletcher's plane caused
an evacuation of the U-S Capitol. The incident took place
the day the body of former President Reagan was placed
in the U-S Capitol for public processions.
Officials are concerned that prevention of an aerial attack
depends on measures taken well before a plane enters
the restricted air space in Washington, D.C. Congressmen
on the House Transportation Committee say the hearings
will focus on what went wrong the day Fletcher's plane
approached, and whether the problems have been fixed.
