    One too many was out flying...

    Some moron in Virginia opted to fly into a restricted area and forced NASA to scrub a launch.

    Thought that was offshore and it was SpaceX.

    Or did someone scrub NASA too, on top of SpaceX?

    It was a Space X rocket I believe, launched by NASA.

    I believe within the 12 miles so still restricted airspace vs warning.

    Sounds like someone earned a chit chat with their FSDO.

    Flew with my CFI to 3W2. Had the place all to ourselves. He has a condo (and an AR15!) there. Lunch took forever but it was a nice trip.

    Anyway to see what the tail number was of said moron? I fly out of KMFV, barely outside of Wallops' (newly expanded) restricted airspace, so there is a chance that if it was a local pilot, I'd know who they were...but from the sounds of it (500ft AGL over the ocean), I'd guess it was a fish spotter.

    Oh, and I got 0.5 in yesterday.
