Airport breach bringsnew scrutiny for TSA
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)— Pilot and murder suspectBrian Hedglin knew how tofly planes. He just neededaccess to one.Turns out, it was as easyas using a rug to scale arazor wire-topped securityfence at a small Utah airportin the middle of night, slip-ping past security, boardingan idle, empty, 50-passengerSkyWest Airlines jet and rev-ving up the engines.He crashed the plane ina parking lot and shot him-self in the head, never gettingoff the ground. But the inci-dent has raised concerns thatnation’s airports may not beas safe as they should be.The TransportationSecurity Administrationdoesn’t require airports tomaintain full-time surveil-lance of their perimeter fenc-es, leaving airport securitylargely in the hands of indi-vidual facilities.At least one aviation secu-rity expert says it might betime to revisit those proto-cols.“Maybe we need to imple-ment some more levels of perimeter security becauseany type of security incidentlike this is a lesson to both thegood guys and the bad guys.They read the papers just asmuch as we do,” said Jeff Price, an aviation securityexpert and aviation profes-sor at the Metropolitan StateUniversity of Denver.The former assistantsecurity director at DenverInternational Airport said thateven after Hedglin gainedaccess to the airfield earlyTuesday, he shouldn’t havebeen able to get aboard theplane.“It should have been lockedand secured if it wasn’t inuse,” Price said.TSA spokeswoman JonellaCulmer said the agency is“currently reviewing perim-eter compliance” at the St.George Municipal Airport,which is about 120 milesnortheast of Las Vegas.City spokesman MarcMortenson noted the airportis surrounded by six miles of perimeter fencing.Local authorities wereinvestigating the breach, butMortenson said the facilitymeets all Federal AviationAdministration and TSAsecurity requirements. Hesaid, however, the entireperimeter isn’t observed at alltimes, “and I would dare sayit isn’t at any airport in thecountry.”SkyWest spokeswomanMarissa Snow said Hedglinwas a pilot for the airline since2005 but had been on admin-istrative leave since July 13,the day police found the bodyof his girlfriend and fellowColorado National Guardmember, Christina Cornejo,in Colorado Springs, Colo.
