Most people fly on commercial airplanes. But starting this weekend, hundreds of private jets carrying VIPs, and lots of celebrities, will be coming to town. "It's supposed to look like the Oscars! I think it's crazy. All the people coming to town... amazing!" says Debbie Dailey of Centreville.
But where to park all those private planes is a problem.
Dulles International Airport Manager Chris Browne says, "We expect an larger number of private aircraft than any other inauguration, about 500 over a period of three to four days."
But Dulles Airport has a ready-made solution. In November, Dulles opened a fourth runway that is only used in the afternoon. It's far from capacity. Now... it will be a parking lot. For private jets. Browne says taking the runway out of service temporarily will NOT impact general aviation.
