San Diego I wouldn't swear to. But I am certain that a plane was brought down in the USA in this fashion. I also remember it being discussed in passing during the speculation over the New York TWA crash. <BR> <BR>Doesn't anyone else remember this? My sister does.

July 12, 1987. PSA Airlines. Pilots shot. 43 dead. San Luis, USA, according to an appallingly long list of all air disasters since planes began flying. <BR> <BR>You don't forget these things.

The person who call from the bathroom was a flight attendant who also provided the seat assignment of one of the hijackers. <BR> <BR>TO ME: and WHO do you thinks is THE SYSTEM?? It's YOU and ME. If we don't speak up and DEMAND changes they are not going to happen.

There is a template for airline security. Do whatever El Al does.

it's not just the faa, not just the airports; it's the airlines as well. <BR> <BR>in the 1980s a korean air jetliner exploded somewhere over asia (wish i cd remember better). investigation found that a north korean agent had planted a bomb in a checkin suitcase, then simply not reboarded when the flight resumed. <BR> <BR>for years afterward, every time i checked in for a kal flight, i was met at the gate by another metal detector check, and was taken off to the side and had my body swiped by another detector--and all passengers got the same treatment. my handcarry was opened, and anything w/ a battery--camera, travel alarm clock--had the battery removed, and taken to checkin luggage. during the flight i recall at least one muscular, stern-faced man in a suit walking up and down the aisles constantly scrutinizing all the passengers. <BR> <BR>korean air's had its problems since w/ maintenance and training, but not w/ terrorism. this is more like what want to see.
