Two flights land at Reagan National with no control tower assistance as the air traffic controller apparently slept Just after midnight on March 23rd two flights scheduled to land at Reagan National Airport (DCA) in Washington, DC had to do so with no help as the one on-duty controller apparently slept at the post. One of the flights was American 1012 and the other United 628T. The regional controller had speculated that the one controller on duty may have been locked out although it was ultimately determined that they were most likely sleeping. Staffing levels at airports around the country will now be evaluated.
