The 110 passengers and five crew members made it out on emergency slides, and firefighters extinguished the flames quickly, Green said.
The builder says his goal was a noiseless plane that would fly as smoothly as a magic carpet.
[DHS] IG found holsters used by thousands of armed airline pilots increase the chance of accidental discharge, and should be replaced. The TSA maintains there's nothing wrong with its holsters.
Even though gas prices fell and airlines offered last-minute deals, many Americans appeared to be skipping trips this year. San Francisco resident Sharon McKellar called the Miami airport "shockingly quiet" after flying in overnight to visi
Clear is a high-tech card that gives you access to express security lines at airports across the country.
A message at the 800 number given to employees Thursday states that money will be in their checking accounts by Tuesday. It appears this funding was not the reported $200-$300 million Eclipse needs to continue operations.
Cessna Aircraft Company had some unwelcome news for employees Wednesday. Approximately 665 workers will soon be handed their walking papers at the planemaker's facilities in Wichita, KS and Bend, OR.
Barring a financial miracle, it appears to be another nail in the coffin for Eclipse Aviation. The struggling planemaker told third shift workers Thursday morning their paychecks due on the 15th of this month will not be honored.
Three is a popular fairy-tale number: three bears, three wishes, third time’s the charm, and three ounces is the most shampoo frequent flyers can haul in their carry-on bags without terrorists hijacking the plane.
Nuclear... the new "Green" - The consolation of sitting a few yards from a nuclear reactor will be non-stop flights from London to Australia or New Zealand, because the aircraft will no longer need to land to refuel.
But the solution to the problems with “watchlists” is not to tighten their enforcement, but to replace secret administrative “no-fly” and “selectee” determinations with judical determinations of dangerousness, made by judges in response to government
What “standardized automated data” will be collected? And what is to stop the agency from collecting all data from all individual travelers and keeping track of it in massive database? After all, it has only been a couple months since the last time T
Airport security in America is a sham—"security theater" designed to make travelers feel better and catch stupid terrorists. Smart ones can get through security with fake boarding passes and all manner of prohibited items—as our corresponde
DALLAS - Southwest Airlines Co. lost money for the first time in 17 years as falling oil prices forced the company to write down the value of its fabled fuel-hedging transactions in the third quarter.

Federal investigators say they have found body parts amid the wreckage of a missing adventurer's airplane in the mountains of eastern California.
Search teams have found the wreckage of the plane piloted by missing adventurer Steve Fossett, who vanished more than a year ago, Madera County, Calif. Sheriff John Anderson said Thursday.
Preston Morrow came across an 'FAA identification card,' as well as a 'pilot's license' and an unspecified third form of identification -- all reportedly bearing Fossett's name -- as well as $1005 in cash in a bush off the tra
The ease with which someone can circumvent the watch lists illustrates the utter futility of identity-based security programs as a whole. Rather than waste time and money, and needlessly sacrifice liberty in the process of conducting this security th
A Swiss man has become the first person to fly solo across the English Channel using a single jet-propelled wing.
The TSA's primary operational hub was re-named the Freedom Center, symbolizing the agency's commitment to protecting the nation's transportation systems against terrorist threats.
The Swiss daredevil Yves Rossy will attempt to cross the Channel on Wednesday propelled by a jet-powered wing strapped to his back.
This scanner is operating in a public area - not a secure area for passengers. This appears to be in contravention of TSA policy because they specify that millimeter wave scanning “technology is a voluntary alternative to a pat-down during secondary
Capping the number, officials complain, hinders competition by preventing new, upstart airlines from entering the market. To mitigate the impact of the caps, the administration is proposing to auction off some takeoff and landing slots to the highest
A rocket-powered racer successfully passed its first three flight tests with a new liquid oxygen and alcohol engine, setting the stage for a possible demonstration race in the sky at the 2008 Reno Air Races next month.
For Kates, on Sunday, though, the security check got too invasive. A big-busted woman wearing a large underwire bra, she set off the metal detector. She was pulled aside and checked by a female TSA agent with a metal-sensitive wand.
Americans are at much greater risk of being arrested or fined in the airport for not kowtowing to federal agents. The rise of the TSA vivifies how low contemporary Americans have fallen.
Air traffic at some major U.S. airports was returning to normal on Tuesday after many planes were delayed due to a glitch in the computer system for filing flight plans, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The Department of Homeland Security sa
The TSA, apparently embarrassed last week for supporting an inspector who climbed aboard American Eagle jets by using air temperature probes as grab handles, has retaliated against the airline with charges and fines.
