Excerpt
Executive Summary: This report presents a summary of events, programs, and accomplishments in civil aviation security in 1996, including the effectiveness of screening in air transportation and foreign air carrier and airport security. Recent events, growth of the aviation industry, and the intelligence assessments that pointed to an increasing threat of terrorism within the United States raised concern about the standard everyday measures that formed the baseline of domestic aviation security. This concern, the tragedies of ValuJet Flight 592 and TWA Flight 800, and major legislation drove a year of sweeping changes and growing partnerships and programs in civil aviation security.
