Man flies 193 miles in lawn chair
With instruments to measure his altitude and speed, a global positioning system device in his pocket, and about four plastic bags holding five gallons of water each to act as ballast — he could turn a spigot, release water and rise — Couch headed into the Oregon sky.
Some other examples from a document, by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority:
– “I am going to set fire to the airplane with this blowtorch” (false declaration), versus “What do you think I look like, a terrorist?” (careless or inflammatory).
– “He is going to hijack the aircraft” (false declaration) versus “Hi Jack!” (careless or inflammatory).
– “The man in seat 32F has a machine gun” (false declaration), versus “My gun misfired when I was hunting this weekend” (careless or inflammatory).
Brigitte Caron, a spokeswoman for the security authority, said the clarification was issued because “screening officers were not discerning the context in which the declaration or the statement was made.
“And they were a little bit too quick on the trigger.”
