September 1 1 th , 200 1 was a dare that changed the face of air travel forever, cuntv at airports instantaneously became a hot issue, prompting the investment of a great deal of thought, time, and money into highly advanced technological safety precautions. Stronger cockpit doors, the presence of air marshals, and intensive security at airports were all implemented. The screening of passengers became extremely meticulous; passengers were not allowed to possess of any kind of sharp object even nail clippers were confiscated. Though this made travel quite a hassle, most travelers viewed it as necessary in the years after 9 11 to keep the public and the air safe from any possible harm. Four years after 9 11, Homeland Security decided to propose changes to the strenuous security measures in order to make air travel easier. On August 5 th , 2005 they pushed forward their new recommendations, proposing to revoke the sanction on sharp carry-on items less than five inches long, such as: razors, screwdrivers for eye- glasses, and nail clippers. They also recommended that passengers not be required to remove their shoes while going through security checkpoints. These proposals were completely abandoned nearly a year later. On August 10 th , 2006, British police successfully arrested twenty-one people suspected of a terror plot to blow up planes flying from the United Kingdom to various places in the United States. These arrests quickly brought back to sharp focus the old fear of terrorist attacks in people all around the world; as a result, stricter rules for air travel were again thought up and immediately enforced. A press release by the U.K. Department of Transport titled " Baggage Advice for U.K passengers " was publicized right after the arrests were made, citing several new and severe rules about carry-on luggage. " Passengers may take through the airport security search area, [limited items] in a single transparent plastic carrier bag... Nothing may be carried in pockets. " Wheelchairs were required to be X-rayed and all liquids were immediately confiscated. The Transport ation Security Administration in the United States quickly put its own series of security measures into action. Though they did not require passengers to carry all carry-on belongings in a clear plastic bag, all passengers were forced to remove their shoes to be X-rayed, and liquids and gels were banned on all flights. The most notable exceptions to this rule were that of baby formula, breast milk, and certain medications. The official report by the TSA stated, " While [these items] will be permitted past the screening checkpoint and on board, please be aware that these items will be subject to physical inspection. You will be required to taste these liquids in the presence of a security officer. " This new height in airline security made it necessary to arrive at the airport three hours before your scheduled flight time. Since August 10 th , 2006 when these rules were first put into action, regulations had grown lax in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Passengers could now carry on up to four ounces of non-prescription medicine and clear plastic bags were no longer required in the U.K. A suitcase is packed full of items like shampoo, deodorant and water, which are no longer allowed to be brought on board in carry-on pieces. The new security rules were implemented after a terrorist scare in early August, 2006. L. Worcester photo features 111
