Before I got this breaking e-mail alert, I got a call from my son who is at Newark. His Continental flight to Germany (he's based in Germany) was scheduled to depart at 7:15. He just called to tell us that they've evacuated Terminal C.

Here’s the info from Fox’s site:

Newark Liberty International Airport is on lockdown on reports of a man breaching security at the Continental Airlines terminal, according to a cable news report.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that operates the airport, tells Fox News their police department is assisting the Transportation Security Administration with a possible security breach at Terminal C.

Someone didn’t wear fresh undies? Has Obama apologized yet?

I once spent 10 hours sitting in Liberty Int’l waiting for a delayed flight. What a shite hole that place is.

Good as place as any to post this:

I've been pondering this the past couple days. In wake of the recent news of fresh attempts against the U.S., if I were trying for soft targets, I would certainly focus in on the next few weeks as a LOT of overtime and extra security was on watch over the holidays. Meaning, security will probably be a little more relaxed at differing locations over the next couple weeks as "manpower" and "man hours" have been exhausted.

Stay aware all..

My company's preferred carrier is Continental, which is great since we're in Columbus and they have a hub in Cleveland. Also, we do a fair bit of business in Houston, another hub. But for NYC, that means Newark. Argghh...that place is a pit.

From your link: Police are seeking the individual, who walked from the public side to the sterile side, said TSA spokeswoman Anne Davis. No flights were allowed to leave from Terminal C Sunday evening, she said.

Authorities are reviewing video from airport cameras. They are not sure whether the man was once on the sterile side and went back, or if he never went through screening, Davis said.

I don't get this. Are they reviewing tapes after the fact and see someone go through without going through security or what?

That pretty much sums up most airport terminals today ... people wandering around in shorts, flip flops, and tank tops. In colder climes they might wear a little more but I'm sure you get my drift.

We used to love to fly. My wife and myself. Been a lot of places in this World, but have to agree with you on that last flight business. Ours was Christmas 1995 to New Orleans.

Never been on a flight since, nor intend to fly ever again since 9/11, unless by some miracle in what little time we have left on this planet we are able to get some sensible people to put a stop to the idiocy that is prevalent today.

That of course means get rid of the Left in our government, restore the Constitution, and beat back, and beat down Islam.

“I hate that terminal. All the ambiance of the bus station...”

And yet, it is SO MUCH BETTER, than the old North Terminal, that I spent several cold nights in, watching the snow piling up in the hall, as it came under the doors.

PeopleXpress days...

After reviewing the tapes, the play stands, 15 yard penalty is assessed after the play for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Although, the past few years it’s gotten busier and busier. Use to be no trouble parking. Now it takes a while to find a spot.

Connected through there twice on a round trip to the UK a couple of years ago with my boss.

We convinced corporate travel to find another way. They did...

A columnist in the Jerusalem Post made several points about the Nigerian bomber episode, the most interesting to me being that while Osama has us all concentrating on flights, they strike in a different, more vulnerable place.

No, although Newark, OH had an Air Force installation years ago.

Just for kicks, the local Ohio pronunciation is Nerk.

That about says it all.

Flew PeopleXpress to London, Denver and a few other destinations out of the old North Terminal. Not all that bad and the aircraft were fine ... as I recall our fare to London per person r/t was $150.00 ... you get what you pay for ... and I spent little time in the terminal. That, of course, was well before 9/11.

That is one airport where I’d doubt the bad guys would need to really put themselves at risk to do something.

Such a disorganized mess at Newark and always has been that I figured Al Queda could pretty much do what they wanted to do with the “help” of some Muslim friendly airport workers, whether in TSA, baggage or hanger locations.
