Since September 11, 2001, the FAA has advised owners and operators of airfields of the potential for follow-on terrorist attacks. Recent statements, apparently by Al Qaeda leaders, threaten attacks against U.S. economic interests.
As we have done in the past, the FAA is seeking your cooperation in helping to safeguard the air transportation system. We believe that it is prudent to inform airport and airfield operators of our concerns. Accordingly, to help keep public and private airfields safe and secure, we need your help.
REMEMBER: If you see something highly dangerous, such as weapons or explosives being loaded on an aircraft, or if you have other reason to believe that a serious crime or some sort of attack is about to occur, immediately call local law enforcement authorities!
