EUGEN5 LSZH (cops at Zurich airport)

June 5th, 2012 No comments

On Planefinder one can see police and fire brigade objects like EUGEN11, EUGEN5, URSULA4 and GALA18 taxying along the run- and taxiways in LSZH at night.

Tower, EUGEN5 speaking, good morning. Can we access runway 28?

This is quite handy, as any attacker with a Smartphone can see, where the cops are located, which would ease access to the airport facility and the aircrafts … 😎
*sigh* – What a misconception!

… they can even be tracked with the live and fully movable webcams of the airport. – And they actually should be audible on frequency as well!?

Denying the "nude scanner"

August 5th, 2010 No comments

Here’s why you should refuse to pass through the “nude scanner” at the airports: Feds admitted, that they were storing images of body scans at airport checkpoints.

See: Cnet News and this Boingboing article

Ask for manual scanning in case the feds are asking you to pass through the scanner and refer to the international human rights law.
