Man Drives On Runway After Smashing Through Gate

Thu Aug 10, 2006 6:03 am

Haven't seen anything on the national news but thought this was very intresting. I was staying up late and went out to get the news paper and on the front page this is what i saw. Didnt expect to see anything like this.
Here's the link to the local news press.

Maybe his wife was on that plane and she forgot her makeup kit or something.

Not to be an alarmist, but it really shows how no matter how high they build the fences, anyone can get into an airport if the really wanted to. Hasn't happened at ORD for a while, but if I think back in time.....
