oh my goodness, the driver of the airplane has a gun! LOL. Wish they had 'em on 9/11. We would have had dead terroists, not dead innocent passengers.

"The pilot did not submit this bag to x-ray screening". Then how did he go through the TSA/airport screening? This doesn't make sense. Did he "sneak" his bag around the machine somehow? This can't be as simple as him being an FFDO.

There's a lot more to this story than this horribly written story tells.

I used to work for Piedmont back in the '70s when everyone carried guns on airplanes. That being illegal these days it's much easier for terrorists to carry out their work knowing they will not be interrupted. I'm sure the 3000+ dead WTC bodies will rest easier because of it. Hint: our government needs to stop kissing the asses that don't count and start taking care of business before the taxpayers decide to support a government that WILL take care of the people over and above all else.

It's about time we get rid of one more negro pilot from the cockpit of today's white airline pilots.

The negro pilots belong in the baggage hold loading bags, or on the fuel trucks fueling airplanes.

He never submitted to screening. Not all airports require flight crews to be felt up since it's common sense that they control the aircraft.

for what? Once again the pilot doesn't need a weapon if he has bad intentions. He's in control of the plane! How simple is that?
