FAA Shifts Managers After Michelle Obama Plane Incident

WASHINGTON -- A week after a plane carrying first lady Michelle Obama aborted a landing at Andrews Air Force Base, the Federal Aviation Administration has changed top managers at the radar center that handled the aircraft.

FAA spokeswoman Sasha Johnson said the agency has returned the acting manager of the Warrenton, Va., regional radar center to his previous duties as assistant manager. The facility's manager -- who had been temporarily working at headquarters -- is back in charge of the center.

The center handles approaches and departures for Andrews and other airports in Maryland and Virginia.

Johnson said the agency is returning "permanent managers" detailed to other duties back to their facilities as part of a nationwide review of the air traffic system.

The change was first reported by The Washington Post.
