If you go to any airport these days, the amount of security and the bureaucracy running things is staggeringly irritating to deal with. For passengers, the frustrations are obvious. Long lines at check-in, headaches at the security area, removal of shoes, getting frisked, being blasted by radiation, and a multitude of other annoyances are just a few of the things that contribute to the madness. Even airline pilots-the absolute final link of the safety chain-are tossed through the TSA system like a rotting piece of garbage in a dumpster.

Airline enthusiasts for years have been hassled by policemen, airport security, park rangers and the like since way before 9/11. I can remember being a teenager in 1996 and being told by an airport police officer to leave my spot alongside the touchdown zone of Runway 13L at JFK because I was a security threat. Fifteen years later, I land on that spot at 160 knots, however, I do believe that it is a good thing that the security guards do keep tabs on potential threats.
