    MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) – A Transportation Security Administration worker packed more than just a sandwich in his lunch bag while heading to work at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. The worker mistakenly packed a gun, which was found by officials as the worker passed through a security checkpoint screening before work, confirmed TSA spokesman Mike McCarthy on Tuesday. “The firearm was detected on Friday at the security checkpoint when a TSA employee underwent screening at the beginning of their shift,” McCarthy said.

    It’s tarmac-to-table dining. The Canada Geese that plague the city’s airports may have a bullseye on their backs but they’ve been a bounty for food banks in the past four years, the Daily News has learned. The federal agency in charge of trapping the geese to prevent bird strikes on airplanes in New York has quietly donated thousands of the captured fowl to slaughterhouses for human consumption. Those processing plants give them to food pantries.

    Hi everyone, I'm arriving at San Jose airport on Tuesday the 29th at 1:00PM, and need a short ride to my family's house a short distance away. My 87 year old dad just passed and I'm flying in from Texas to attend his funeral. None of my family members can pick me up, and I don't want to put myself at the mercy of some Uber driver with piercings and tattoos, nor do I trust foreign taxi drivers. If anyone in the San Jose area can give me a lift to my dad's house (less than ten miles), I'll be...

    The Department of Justice on Friday released 413 pages of emails related to a controversial private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the FBI’s investigation into then-presidential-candidate Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi emails. The FBI said earlier such records did not exist. This discharge of information is the result of a lawsuit filed against the DOJ by the American Council for Law and Justice (ACLJ) in November 2016. The newly-released emails mostly include DOJ officials’ conversations with reporters, who were seeking comment on the meeting between Lynch and the former president on an airport tarmac in...

    SAN FRANCISCO — In what one aviation expert called a near-miss of what could have been the largest aviation disaster ever, an Air Canada pilot on Friday narrowly avoided a tragic mistake: landing on the San Francisco International Airport taxiway instead of the runway. Sitting on Taxiway C shortly before midnight were four airplanes full of passengers and fuel awaiting permission to take off, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, which is investigating the “rare” incident. An air traffic controller sent the descending Air Canada Airbus 320 on a “go-around” — an unusual event where pilots must pull up and...

Looking to get away? Too bad. You’ll be forced to watch the media’s propaganda in the boarding area.

    is only a matter a time. You have to be right 100% of the time — and with Obama importing whole Muslim communities from jihad nations, it is impossible. Which is why we have seen this spike in jihad terror attacks (Chattanooga, Boston, Garland …..). The idea that you cannot profile for jihad is suicidal. It is submission to Islamic supremacism. A Florida man charged earlier this week in an alleged Islamic State-inspired plot to detonate a bomb on a crowded beach was once cleared to work at the Key West International Airport, where his job provided him direct access...

    BOSTON (CBS) – TSA agents have found a number of strange things in luggage over the years, but their latest unusual discovery is uniquely New England. A spokesman shared a photo Monday of a lobster weighing more than 20 pounds. The crustacean was detected in a checked bag in Terminal C (JetBlue) on Sunday morning. Lobsters can travel in either carry-on or checked bags. They’re a common sight at New England airports, but this one was notable because of how large it is. The TSA tells WBZ-TV that the lobster was traveling in a cooler and was alive and well....

    The FBI is investigating as an "act of terrorism" a knife attack on a Michigan airport police officer Wednesday by a man yelling "Allahu Akbar."

US officials identified the suspected assailant, who is in custody and cooperating with investigators, as a 49-year-old Canadian resident from Quebec named Amor Ftouhi.
