Flights have resumed at Washington's Reagan National Airport after a prolonged delay due to the horrific scenes that unfolded at the Washington Navy Yard, reports USA Today.

Around 30 planes were stranded on the tarmac while passengers waited patiently for news.

Reports coming from the Navy Yard as saying several people have been killed, a shooter is dead but two more remain at large and appear to have escaped the scene.

Coincidentally, according to Reagan National's official website, the airport is due to undergo an emergency training drill on the morning of September 21. It's described as: "Full-Scale Emergency Exercise at Reagan National Saturday, Sept. 21."
