Description

After a terrorist bomb exploded in the cargo hold of Pam Am Flight 103 in 1988 and again after the ValueJet crash in the Florida Everglades in 1996 the Federal Aviation Administration issued stricter guidelines to ensue that dangerous cargo would not be loaded into the cargo holds of passenger planes. A WTXF-TV investigation found that the system put in place by the FAA doesn't work.
