A statue for 'The Gipper': Reagan sculpture unveiled at DC airport

Former President Reagan was honored Tuesday with a statue at the Washington-area airport named in his honor.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation unveiled a statue of the 40th president, for whom the nearest airport to the capital city's borders is named, during a ceremony at Reagan Washington National Airport.

The ceremony, which took place in front of Terminal A, was attended by former Sens. Bob and Elizabeth Dole, both Republicans, the former president's foundation said on its Twitter page.

The agency also tweeted a picture of the statue.
