During the Cherry Blossom event in 2020, also known as the Wild West era for VATUSA, an unnamed controller offered all the aircraft flying into DCA a tour of Fredericksburg, VA which is about 40 miles south of DCA airport before clearing them onto the approach: https://youtu.be/I0XgQr0wG64. Due to this, the Washington Virtual ARTCC has unofficially named any long finals after this controller.
This time, the Washington Virtual ARTCC invites you to revisit this historical event by departing from RIC and ORF and entering the final approach course of Runway 1 into DCA, no matter the wind.
