WASHINGTON - The North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct a one-day exercise in the Washington area.
The exercise will include training flights conducted in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Capital Region Command Center, the Joint Air Defense Operations Center, the Continental U.S. NORAD Region, Civil Air Patrol, U.S. Coast Guard and others.
They do conduct drills from time to time. But it's true that they were conducting a drill about terrorists flying planes into the World Trade Center on the day of 9/11/01. And it is also true that in London they were conducting a drill about terrorists bombing the underground on 7/7, the day the tubes were actually bombed. What are the chances of a terrorist attack happening on the same day, same place, as a drill for it? I once saw it worked out by an actuarial table, it was a number so enormous I'd never seen it before. Pretty strange.

Nah I don't think they'd risk this a third time.
The exercise, called Falcon Virgo 09-10, will be conducted beginning early Wednesday. Falcon is a bird of prey and Virgo is the Virgin? 09-10? What could that signify?
