APG 126 – Farnborough 2014, United Divert to Midway, TSA
Play

Tragedy strikes Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. News of the apparent shoot-down by an anti-aircraft missile over Ukraine is breaking right before I push the record button for Episode 126.

A United B-777 diverts to Midway Atoll after experiencing electrical odors, smoke and haze, and electronic instrument failures enroute from Honolulu, HI to Guam.

The TSA introduces new precautionary measures for flights to the United States from some international airports. Make sure your electronic device batteries are fully charged! Also, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), illegal aliens can travel on US air carriers without any valid ID. What? And a TSA agent held up an Orlando television reporter at the Orlando International Airport for not having valid ID. Apparently, this agent didn’t realize that drivers licenses of the District of Columbia (Washington, DC) are valid US identification documents, and passports are not necessary.

On the brighter side, Just A Catholic Dad Sean McCarney joins me to discuss the Farnborough International Air Show, which is going on this week.
