05/12/09 79 W, 1 I - + 9 - 11 Ground Crew to Tower: This Sucks

Firegeezer found this photo of an incident yesterday at Los Angeles International Airport. Japan Airlines Boeing 747 versus baggage tram container. Suction happened. Read the Geezer Guy's report. As for the below photo, observe one person wearing a medical mask. Someone fearing swine flu? Hasn't the hamdemic threat receded? The pork been pulled, so to speak? It was tail-curling for a while, at least as the media was reporting. You never sausage anxiety.

It’s very common to see a large percentage of passengers on flights to and from Japan wearing masks, #1 to hydrate the air, #2 to prevent infection from re-circulated air. You will also see this on buses, downtown in supermarkets and in departments stores. It is considered extremely rude there to cough or sneeze and spread your germs to others. No one even thinks anything of people wearing masks since it is so common.
