Not that I know anything about security, but I should have thought that was basic common sense?

I guess, like many jobs the day-to-day is routine work is 99% boredom & 1% effort.

.... I guess armed airport security is 99.999% boredom & .001% .... people die?!!

 came back from Turkey last week through Stansted for the first time ever from Turkey everybody got proper checked at passport control looking very closely at the passports, My daughter had her friend with us who was 17 and the officer asked me where her letter of permission was from her parentsí we were a bit surprised what he asked. He then gave us a leaflet and told us from now on anybody (same name) not family under 18 must have a letter with them authorising permission. We were told this was due to the 2 young girls that have gone to fight abroad.

Security will be heightened at major airports over the next few weeks I expect anyway, a NATO leaders summit at Celtic Manor in Newport (not too far from me) means that there are police checkpoints, police on motorway bridges and woo-huge fences around various places...and I only know this from my parents who were driving down the M4 that way.

Well I live by the side of said motorway.  Police every where. Noisy helicopters overhead.  All very exciting.

I was wondering! I was hoping Bristol, as I could go see it, but I don't think you can land a 747 in Bristol...

Fairford  in Gloucestershire,  last night.

There are also some American planes/ helicopters flying around today.  Just saw the President motoring past my house in a blacked out car.  It looked heavy.   %)

Soooo annoying, I have a friend who lived on the top of the local hill you can see aircraft landing and taking off from Fairford from across the river Severn, and when it's the AF1 747 it would have been a sight to see!
Also explains the VERY low helicopters at around 11pm last night that woke me up!  <*<

On the wider subject of airport security my mate, Dave, recounts a time when he was flying to Belfast every two weeks or so from East Midlands to see his ailing mum. Having previously worked as a Customs Officer at that airport he didn't have much of a good opinion of the staff on the security barriers and scanners and noticed that they appeared to be checking the shoes only of every third passenger who passed through the scanner, irrespective of who that was, type of shoe etc. This was at a time when you didn't routinely have to put them in the tray with everything else. In front of him in the queue was a mother with two fractious infants and an armful of baby-equipment, all of which was going to have to be guided through the scanners. Dave spotted that she would be the passenger who, according to his theory, would be asked to remove her shoes, so he briefly explained to her that if they changed places then he'd be the mug instead...................
Sorry to disappoint everyone but he was absolutely correct, and received a wide smile and a thank-you from the lady as he was re-tying his laces. What price any claim to "targeting" or especially "intelligence" when deciding who to check - or is the definition of intelligence within airport security now considered to be simply the ability to count up to three?
I can do that - gizza job!
