Claims It Was A DHS Test...
Turkey's Cihan News Agency has set its credibility back a bit
with a news item that attracted our attention here at ANN HQ.
Cihan claims that the recent Cessna 150 ADIZ incursion was
nothing more than a test contrived by the Department of Homeland
Security. According to Cihan, "Experts claim that the incident was
not derived from an accident, neglect or ignorance; on the
contrary, it could be a "security test" planned by the US
Department of Homeland Security."
Cihan added that "An
expert on civilian aviation at the US Air Forces who wishes to
remain anonymous said: '35,000 people alone work in the Congress
building. The quick response for the evacuation of the large number
of employees from the building in the shortest possible time was
tested. Furthermore, the reactions of people, the panic, their
knowledge of emergency exists and which the files were taken during
the evacuation were observed in the test.'"
In the meantime, we have no word as whether the offending
aviators involved in this little mess will attempt to use this
missive to divert the FAA's upcoming enforcement actions. Is "The
DHS made me do it," a viable defense? We'll keep you updated
