actually, having been stuck in horrendous traffic all the way back to 
portland (four hours, including waiting for  a gallon of gas to get me off 
the turnpike...stoopid, stoopid chuckie...), every.... i repeat, every aspect 
of the flying capabilities included that he was NOT rated for IFR.  that he 
was indeed VFR only.  
trust me when i say, i heard it all... the dan rather & crew tv version, and 
then two plus hours of the ABC radio crew.  

but not being a pilot, let me say your comments make perfect sense to one who 
often wonders how much easier it would be to get to work if i could fly.
