APG 101 – Baby It’s Cold Outside

Cold enough for ya? Recorded in Baltimore, MD, Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Well, it is cold here! In this episode, I talk about the inexplicable actions of the Edmonton International security screeners, who allowed a young man to continue his travels after confiscating a pipe bomb from him. Must have looked pretty harmless… with the NINE FOOT LONG fuse hanging from it. Oh, and they tried to GIVE IT BACK TO HIM. Amazing.

The 787 Dreamliner is still experiencing some “growing pains,” I guess. An Air India 788 loses all transponders near Belin, and fuel leaking from the right wing in Bangkok.

A DC-9 leaves the runway in Saltillo, Mexico.

One of two giant eagle sculptures hanging from the ceiling of the Wellington, New Zealand airport came crashing down last week after a 6.3 magnitude earthquake last week. No one was injured.

And finally, we talk about the article written by Rich Smith at The Motley Fool entitled “TSA at the Airport: Inconvenient, or Just Plain Incompetent?
