Feds warn of small airplane terror threats
WASHINGTON - September 4, 2011 The FBI and DHS say as recently as early this year, al-Qaida considered ways to attack the aviation sector because it would have a greater impact than other means of attack. That's from a Sept. 2 bulletin obtained by The Associated Press. The bulletin was sent to law enforcement and private officials around the country but was considered routine.

Federal and local law enforcement have increased security around the country before the anniversary.
