Description

After the terrorist hijacking of airplanes from major U.S. airports on Sept. 11, the Post-Standard began it's own investigation of the security and screening measures taking place at Syracuse's Hancock International Airport. Their investigation found that since 1988 Hancock's screeners have failed to detect real or simulated weapons being brought through the airport, totaling 64 security breaches. The Post-Standard found that Hancock's screeners are paid less than the airport's parking lot cashier and bathroom custodian. They also discovered that the Federal Aviation Administration does not notify the airport's commissioner when it cites an airline for a security violation.
