U.S. Considers Requiring Cameras Providing Cabin Views

U.S. Considers Requiring Cameras Providing Cabin Views

Quote:
The Sept. 11 hijackings have left pilots wanting more knowledge about activity in the passenger cabin, without stepping through their newly fortified doors. Now the Transportation Department, with encouragement from Congress, is considering requiring video cameras that will provide images of passengers to the cockpit.

Manufacturers, working to anticipate a demand, are developing systems, including one that would transmit images from hidden cameras to the cockpit and to tiny hand-held screens that air marshals could look at without blowing their cover.

This idea sounds really good to me. Lots of airline have been promising to implement this for the past few months, but I've seen no reports that this has been completed anywhere.
