That California mystery pilot who popped some security cell phone videos on You Tube appeared on TV today. He didn't do himself any favors. In an interview with ABC's GMA the pilot was asked why he didn't go to the TSA first--a logical question--and his answer was that he didn't know so many people were watching You Tube. Dude.
Not to say there aren't access issues--the Charlotte stowaway case is potentially troubling. But no system is perfect. Ground folks need to pass back and forth between public/secure a lot more often than pilots, some whom may pass through a particular airport once or twice a year. The better way to handle this dilemma would be to create a better ID card for flight crews that would preclude the need for normal screenings while going to work every day. Or maybe that was the point.
