Finally, some excitement.  Our plane apparently lost the hydraulic system as we were getting ready to land at Reagan National, WHOA!!! The pilot came on the intercom and said something like, “Folks, we have no brakes!” so we were diverted to Dulles International as they had a long enough runway for us to stop. The pilot said we would circle for a while so they could get ready for us at Dulles. He said not to be alarmed about the emergency vehicles, which were everywhere by the way, when we landed. It was exactly like TV, a whole row of flashing lights, lots of fire trucks and ambulances and police…lots of flashing red lights. We did get this pictures as we waited on the runway for the plane braking system to cool down so we could be towed to the terminal. EXCITING FOR A FLAT KANSAS BOY.
