predictive quotation marks

I don't normally post these kinds of things, but thought this was too tidy to ignore. Phil got this email from arlington alert:
From: "Arlington Alert">
Date: June 8, 2010 9:51:20 AM EDT
To: "Arlington Alert Subscribers">
Subject: Alert from Arlington County

Between 10-1030 a.m., 8 vintage bi-plane aircraft will ‘fly-in’ to Reagan National Airport (DCA). The planes will be divided into two formations of four aircraft each. Flights may enter DCA airspace from the south or from the north. The aircraft will depart DCA after 3:30 p.m. today. OEM/JJB

Later that day, Phil saw this article, I guess the "landing" was quotation mark worthy after all.

Oh my. That's both prescient and disturbing. In fact, it's disturbing because it's prescient.

I thought maybe the quotation marks were in recognition of the unnecessary hyphen.
