Ever wonder what a Con Air flight looks like when it is being loaded? Lots of dudes with M16's and MP5's, and lots of body armor. And not too many smiles when I broke out my gear!

Wow! This is truly a unique scene.
But it raises the question: is it worth committing a serious crime, and being sent to some of the highest-security prisons in the world - if it means you get to take a 727? XD (j/k)

This is a big deal. It shows coordination between ground transportation and commercial airlines. This coordination is the opening of many types of coordination - military/ambulance for evacuations, deportations, prisoner removal, etc. Maybe this kind of collaboration can create the networks required to eliminate some of the disasters that happened during Katrina where patients were left behind to die.
