This giant douchebag has something against general aviation. First the illegal destruction of miegs field, and now he's using the incident of some drunk running onto the tarmac at midway:

Midway perimeter in line for tighter security

March 9, 2006

BY FRAN SPIELMAN AND MONIFA THOMAS Staff Reporters

Aviation security officers will undergo "comprehensive retraining" -- and Midway Airport's three perimeter checkpoints will be redesigned -- in response to an embarrassing breach that allowed an intoxicated man to sneak onto the tarmac, officials said Wednesday.

Training of more than 225 security officers and supervisors will be conducted by the Department of Aviation in conjunction with the Transportation Security Administration.

"Our goal is to have that [retraining] happen as soon as possible," said Aviation Department spokesman Wendy Abrams.

"We also plan to take a look at the configuration of all three of the Midway checkpoints and make some design changes as necessary. We are looking at any and all options that we can employ at both of our airports to make sure they are as safe as they can be," Abrams said.

Despite those changes, Mayor Daley on Wednesday dismissed the Midway breach as an isolated incident and nothing to be alarmed about.

"Could there be another incident next month? I guess. Yeah. But, it's one. It's not 50, 100, 200," the mayor said, adding that he saw no reason to add officers at Midway's perimeter checkpoints.

The incident -- leading to a brief shutdown of a Midway runway -- occurred late Sunday afternoon.

On field for 6 minutes

A 22-year-old man slipped through a security gate at 55th and Laramie, apparently while an unarmed aviation security officer was preoccupied with a vehicle leaving.

Mark Mechniek was charged with reckless conduct and trespassing on airport property and has been ordered held on $5,000 bond. Mechniek was on the airfield for six minutes before being apprehended after being spotted by a Southwest Airlines pilot between Runways 4 Left and 4 Right.

A portion of the airfield was closed briefly and a jetliner approaching Midway was ordered to go around. The five-year veteran aviation security officer assigned to the compromised checkpoint was put on administrative leave with pay pending an investigation.

Transportation experts said the security breach could have been prevented if Midway had "sally port" gates that hem vehicles in between two fences before they are allowed to proceed, similar to those in correctional facilities.

TSA and aviation officials have discussed installing such gates at Midway since the incident, TSA spokeswoman Lara Uselding said.

Daley said he's more concerned about the FAA's failure to grant his oft-repeated request for a no-fly zone over Chicago.

"If you fly a single-engine plane, you can go anyplace in the United States -- except Disney [World] in Florida, Disneyland in California, Washington, D.C., and New York," he said.

"So don't worry about anybody walking on....You don't have to file a flight [plan]. You don't have to have any security. They can bring anything in the plane they want."

I heard that someone was killed due to the miegs demolition.

Apparently someone tried to land there without knowing that the runwas were destroyed.


Daley should be tried for murder.

I think there needs to be zone to keep the idiots like Daily in Chicago. The idiot thinks it will bring prestige to the city. New York has one why can’t Chicago?

The Disney World one isn't that restrictive.

For example DC and NY have "temporary" air defense identification zones (ADIZ) that go from the ground to 18000 feet in which you have to have comms with ATC and a transponder set.


Disney World/Disneyland - Aircraft flight operations are prohibited within three nautical miles and below 3,000 feet AGL of the Disney World theme park near Orlando, Florida (FDC NOTAM 3/2122), and the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California (FDC NOTAM 3/2123). Restrictions do not apply to aircraft authorized by ATC for operational or safety purposes, or for aircraft arriving or departing from an airport with the TFR using standard air traffic procedures. As usual, Department of Defense, law enforcement or aeromedical flights in contact with ATC are permitted to operate within the restricted airspace.

Did Daley ever get his ass out of trouble from that trucking scam? Maybe this is cover? I'm glad I don't live in that corrupt ass city anymore.

While he damn well could have killed someone with this stunt (there were no NOTAMs published to this airport which had instrument approaches) the worst that I can find that happened was that 16 planes were stranded on the field until they could get special permission to take off from the parallel taxiway.
