More Misadventures With 'Security Theater'
ANN's Paul Plack talks with Jim Pitman, a former Cessna employee
who was intercepted by Wichita police when he landed in a what they
erroneously thought was a stolen Cessna aircraft in January, 2009.
This was the same plane in which John and Martha King would be
cornered at gunpoint in California a year and a half later.
This feature is in addition to our daily news briefing --
available in either a quick "Touch And Go" format, or an expanded
Aero-Briefing -- where you'll hear these stories:
Is "see and avoid" on its way out?
NTSB says too many children are not transported
And DOT says the three-hour rule is working.
