    Isn't that nice? :rolleyes:

    This is just ****ing pathetic. Just more evidence that we are no more secure today than before 9/11.

    Oh come on, we're safe! They're rubbing patting down those scary toddlers. Who needs to know who is flying the planes?

    I wonder just how many narcotics get smuggled into the USA thanks to this.

    this is bordering on the bizarre.. passenger get full body searches and then board a plane whose ownership isn't known ?
    this way beyond incompetence

    And yet, my car's license plates expire at the end of April, and if I'm out driving at 12:01 AM on May 1 without having renewed them, I'm guaranteed to get pulled over and get a ticket. :rolleyes:

    As incompetent as the DMV is, perhaps we need them working at the FAA. It would be an improvement.

    Perhaps the FAA is paid a Princely sum to look the other way? ;)

    And those Black-Ops Challengers?? What of them? :eek:

    Registered planes are not more likely to be flow into buildings than unregistered ones.


    However, that's not really the issue here. The news has overblown the situation here just a bit. Until now, aircraft registration was good for life. So let's say you bought a plane back in 1990. But in 1997, a tornado hit the local airport and it's been balled up in the swamp since then. Or just drive by any small airport and see the rows of old airplanes just rotting away. Those situations encompass a lot of what has been 'lost'.
