Aero-News Quote of the Day
"I feel safer now, don't you?"
Source: AOPA President Phil Boyer, on
Thursday's reposting on the FAA's website of the transcript of a
January 18 meeting on the Washington ADIZ. Last month, NORAD
requested that the Department of Homeland Security pull the
transcript, and screen it thoroughly for any secure or sensitive
information that may have been presented during the meeting. In
particular, NORAD seemed troubled by the testimony of one private
pilot -- who flies Navy F-18s for a living -- who commented that a
rogue aircraft could legally gain access to the ADIZ, and then
proceed to head towards the Capitol before military aircraft could
intercept it. The result of the investigation? Over one month after
the transcript was pulled... and nearly three months since the
meeting took place... the transcript is back. What's more, nothing
harmful to national security was found.
