A great industry if not for the traveling public


A security event today at Philadelphia involving a passenger on a US Airways has you shaking your head.

It appears the Airbus A319, en route to Dallas-Fort Worth, was forced to return to Philadelphia shortly after takeoff when a telephone call to Philadelphia police alerted them to a passenger who was apparently carrying something suspicious.

Turns out, it was a hoax call from some idiot who believed this would be the perfect "birthday surprise" gift for the passenger concerned.

And this as we approach the 11th anniversary of 9/11.
