The driver "faces local charges of vandalism, driving while under the influence of a controlled substance, hit and run, and unauthorized entry to an air field." That ought to cost him a pretty penny, a lost driver's license, and possibly some jail time...

While I hope this incident inspires the Airport Authority to consider reasonable improvements to security, I hope it's not at the cost of eliminating spotting opportunities.

Aside from a brick wall I dont think anyone could prevent someone from driving a car through a fence like this guy did.

You could always dig a tank trap I guess.

But whatever the most paranoid suggestion the public comes up with will be the one that is taken up.

Yeah, or the most paranoid suggestion the MEDIA comes up with as well...

Probably just a disgruntled spotter proving his point that the TSA cannot and WILL NOT SUCCESSFULLY kill our hobby. or Maybe just a pissed off guy at the TSA, DHS, and GWB.

Or, more likely, a drunk driver with a suspended license, an unregistered vehicle, and no insurance.
