U.S. security agents searching a checked suitcase after an alarm went off at New York's LaGuardia Airport expected the usual contraband - guns, knives or a hand grenade - but instead found a stowaway Chihuahua, authorities said on Friday. Staring back at the agents was a 7-year-old beige and brown dog who had sneaked into the luggage, which its owner had checked onto her American Airlines flight to Los Angeles, said Lisa Farbstein, spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration. "She was just as surprised as we were," Farbstein said. TSA agents, whose past checked luggage searches have turned up such dangerous items as a gas-filled chainsaw, reunited the tiny dog with its owner, who was not identified.

U.S. Air Force eyes Textron plane, others for future air support

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 03/07/2015 - 04:34
By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Air Force is looking at Textron Inc's Scorpion and other aircraft to address future needs for low-end air support missions given its plans to retire the aging fleet of A-10 Warthog planes in coming years, a top general said Friday. Later versions of Lockheed Martin Corp's F-35 fighter jet would be the primary warplane used for close air support in future conflicts with higher-end adversaries, General Herbert Carlisle, who heads Air Combat Command, told reporters. He said no decisions had been made on a possible acquisition program, but the Air Force had looked at the Scorpion plane developed by Textron using its own funds and others to address lower-end threats instead of using stealthy and costly F-35s. We're just keeping our opportunities open." Carlisle spoke to reporters after a weeklong "summit" involving the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Special Operations Commands and other Pentagon officials as they reviewed current close air support missions and future needs.
