WASHINGTON (CNN)–The planes wait for no one, not even Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain.
At Washington's Reagan National airport Tuesday night the Senator from Arizona was paged several times by a gate agent, who warned he had only three minutes to get to his flight.
"Paging passenger John McCain, John McCain," the flight representative called over the public address system.
Fellow passengers stared in disbelief as the Senator briskly walked through the airport to catch his flight to Boston wondering if it really was the presidential candidate.
McCain waved to onlookers as their questions were confirmed. One person shouted, "I love you Mr. President!"
