Very worrying for all sorts of reasons-hope the cash isn't going to Al-qaeda or similar....

Pretty scary- not that the robbery occured, but how easily they gained access to the tarmac area. I hope it's an inside job, because if not, there's some pretty lax security.

"Passengers should be extremely worried. If they can get airside they have access to aircraft. It only takes seconds to board an empty aircraft and plant a bomb.

"One wonders if the government is only paying lip service to the issue of airport security. The inquiry should have taken less time."

Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.
