Say Hello To Stringers Franklin Porath And Dave Slosson!
With the final days before the official start to EAA AirVenture
2008 counting down all too rapidly... and, not quickly enough...
ANN's senior staff is all-too-aware of the Herculean task ahead of
us in reporting EVERYTHING that's news at The World's Greatest
"It will definitely be a benefit to passengers not
having to see someone cut in line."

John Prater, who supports the TSA's testing of separate security
checkpoints for pilots over the next 60 days at
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport,
Pittsburgh International Airport and South Carolina's Columbia
Metropolitan Airport. Pilots arriving at the checkpoints will not
be screened for weapons, but will have their photo IDs checked
against photos in a database, to make sure the IDs aren't being
used by anyone but the rightful holders. The Association of Flight
Attendants is protesting the move, saying safety demands everyone
boarding an airplane be checked for weapons.
