Say What? The Mysterious Skywriting Over Reston Monday

Writing over Reston on May 16/Credit: Modern Reston

Several Reston Now readers contacted us and took to Facebook and Twitter Monday afternoon when this skywriting was seen in the sky.

It appears to say “Denynia.”

Several readers directed us to the National Association of Airline Pilots, based in Herndon. The NAIP is organizing a “Deny NAI” campaign, according to its website.

On April 15, the Department of Transportation (DOT) tentatively approved Norwegian Air International’s (NAI) request for a foreign air carrier permit to allow it to operate flights to the United States.

NAI’s business plan is designed to avoid Norwegian labor, tax and regulatory laws. It is inconsistent with the intent of the US-EU Air Transport Agreement and, if allowed to be implemented in the trans-Atlantic market, would put U.S. airlines and aviation workers at a tremendous disadvantage as they compete in the international marketplace–two reasons the Obama Administration should immediately reverse this decision.

Nonetheless, there may be a typo high in the sky.
