Dozens of federal inspector credentials giving access to airports have gone missing, an NBC 5 investigation revealed.

According to the investigation, 122 Federal Aviation Administration safety inspector badges have been stolen or lost in the past five years. The credentials are one of the few forms of identification that give complete and unfettered access to airport facilities, including the cockpits of planes in flight.

"The FAA badge is probably of all the badges just as dangerous if not more so than any other," aviation expert Denny Kelly said.
