Quotes

"I have long been concerned about security at our airport perimeters" state Rep. Eric Swalwell tweeted. " #Stowaway teen demonstrates vulnerabilities that need to be addressed."
After speaking with some Boeing 767 captains, Kay said, "There are airports around the world where airlines designate certain airfields as a stowaway risk."
Inside, there's not much room -- even less than in the trunk of a car, Guillen said. A stowaway would need to guess "where the tire is going to fold in when it closes after takeoff. There's a high risk of getting crushed once the gear starts going in."
