Chicago Bio-Terror Drill (ORD&MDW)

Tue May 13, 2003 8:33 am

Beginning today and lasting all week, Seattle and Chicago are playing host to the largest bio-terror drill ever. Apparently Chicago's mock scenario involves some type of plague being released at an airport (I believe ORD) and some type of crash at MDW. I would imagine that both of these "incidents" will have quiet an impact on traffic at both airports. I heard a brief snippet on the news about how pilots and passengers at MDW will be notified that the "crash" they are seeing is not a real one (supposedly it is to be realistic-complete with smoke and fire).

This should be quiet interesting, anybody working at ORD or MDW taking part or have any other info. on this event?
