Feds Searching All Commercial Airplanes

Feds Searching All Commercial Airplanes

Quote:
Authorities are searching every commercial airplane in the United States on Friday after someone left bags filled with claylike material, bleach and boxcutters on two Southwest Airlines flights, officials told Fox News.

Whoever left the bags on planes in Houston and New Orleans left notes that said the writer was concerned about security on airplanes. It is unclear when the bags were left on the planes.

Box Cutters on Planes 5 Weeks, FBI Says

Box Cutters on Planes 5 Weeks, FBI Says

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) - A college student told federal authorities he placed box cutters and other banned items aboard two Southwest Airlines (LUV) planes nearly five weeks before they were found, according to an FBI affidavit.

The affidavit, obtained by The Associated Press, said Nathaniel Heatwole, 20, told agents he went through normal security procedures at airports in Baltimore and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and was able to carry the forbidden items onto the planes.
Can't say I'm surprised.
