STRANGE BUT TRUE

Sunday Times - - Arrivals & Departures -

The No Fly List of peo­ple pro­hib­ited from board­ing com­mer­cial air­craft within, into, or out of the US was only cre­ated af­ter the 9/11 at­tacks of 2001. Be­fore that, the govern­ment had a list of 16 peo­ple deemed “no trans­port” for pre­sent­ing a “threat to avi­a­tion”. The au­thor­i­ties won’t re­veal how many names are on the list to­day, but es­ti­mates put it at tens of thou­sands.
