Reagan statue unveiled at National Airport

(By Meredith Somers, The Washington Times) - A towering bronze statue of President Ronald Reagan was unveiled Tuesday, as the last of four statues marking the president’s centennial was dedicated at the airport of his namesake.

“It’s a privilege to be able to unveil a statue of Ronald Reagan,” said former Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole. “He was a man who blessed this endeavor, sponsored the legislation and cheered on the effort many years ago.”

Reagan is credited with championing the transfer of power of the two Virginia airports from federal hands to what is today the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.
