More on airport security & the lack thereof.

"...We recently had a female pilot - in uniform - passing through airport security where she was slated to fly the airplane on her regular three-day trip. As she was having her carry-on bag searched, she inquired, 'What are you looking for?' The response she received from the security [person]: 'Anything that you could use to break into the cockpit and gain control of the aircraft.' Not only was she working the flight but in her pocket, as is the case with all of us, was a cockpit key."
