*** FAA Purchases Additional Security Equipment

WASHINGTON-The Federal Aviation Administration announced  today that it would
purchase more than 150 additional security  devices for the nation's airports,
continuing to implement a  recommendation by the White House Commission on
Aviation  Safety and Security. "Thanks to the $100 million Congress recently
appropriated for this purpose in fiscal year 1999 we have been able to continue
deploying state-of-the-art security equipment to protect the flying public,"
said Cathal L. Flynn, associate administrator for civil aviation security. "In
partnership with the aviation industry, we are  raising the baseline of security
to meet the evolving threat." http://www.faa.gov/apa/pr/
