Airlines, FAA, Local Police Need To Wise Up!

Fri Jun 09, 2006 10:12 pm

BNSF railroad just announced they need rail fans help in keeping BNSF rails safe. They allow you to register as a rail fan and you will recieve an ID. Now only if the FAA, Local Police, etc. would see that we aviation spotters could do the same. We must do something, I for one am tired of looking over my shoulder for some type of agency to come and question me like I'm a terrorist. Any ideas on were we can go from here?

Great idea! Someone should pass this along to the TSA.

Once again proves corporations can come up with good ideas while the government (TSA) can't seem to figure anything out......
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

In a side note, does anyone have the contact info of the alderman who runs the area near ORD?
