They *did* fly there, though, which I suspect is what the person asking
the question had in mind.  What was the procedure when they used to fly
there?  Is the noise the reason they don't fly there anymore?  I remember
watching a Concorde take off from IAD some 10-15 years ago, but if I
recall, there were flights up until just a few years ago.
