Redskins plane headed home from Rockies (updated)
(Updated at 1:15 p.m.)
As one coach leaves, the search for another officially commences -- even if it unofficially started months ago. And there appears to be movement.
The airplane of Redskins owner Daniel Snyder left out of Dulles International this morning and landed in Centennial Airport in Englewood, Colo., at approximately 10:45 a.m., according to sites that track flight plans.
The team will not comment before today's news conference, but it's worth pointing out that Mike Shanahan lives in the Denver area. We'll keep following the plane and let you know of any developments. It would seem that Snyder's plane would have to leave Denver at some point, right?
And that plane now is back in the air. It was headed east over Kansas, as of 1 p.m.

Snyder's jet was spotted on the runway by Post reporter Zach Berman before quickly disappearing into a private hangar. NBC4's Dan Hellie found Shanahan at the airport, but the former Denver coach declined to comment. Hellie said he asked Shanahan if he'd like to talk. "No, not right now," Shanahan responded to Hellie.
Shanahan went from plane to car to short order and was whisked away to an unknown destination.
