Miller, Dingell ask account of airport safety lapses
WASHINGTON – Some members of Michigan’s congressional delegation want to know whether there’s a lack of uniform standards for airline and airport personnel reacting to bomb threats and, if so, whether that led to people being put at risk at Detroit Metro Airport after Flight 253 landed on Dec. 25.One House member, U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer, plans to bring it up at a hearing next Thursday of the Aviation Subcommittee he serves on. The Battle Creek Democrat has been pushing for the panel – part of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee – to look into the Christmas Day bombing attempt and any glitches which may have endangered the public.
In an exclusive today, the Free Press reported that miscues and apparent blunders may have put passengers and people on the ground in potential danger after an incident in which authorities say Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow up the Northwest flight on Christmas Day as it descended into the airport.
“It appears that there were some breaches of protocol, some lapses in the process,” said Schauer. “We need to examine those and learn from those.” He said he forwarded the Free Press article to U.S. Rep. Jerry Costello, the Illinois Democrat who chairs the Aviation Subcommittee, in the hopes that questions about airline and airport protocol can be raised at Thursday’s already planned hearing on airline safety and pilot training.
