Petapixel.com ; Also: http://pdnpulse.com/2010/09/tsa-talks-about-suspicious-photog-poster-sparking-outrage-on-blogs.html
TAKEAWAY: Itís easier for the terrorist to go to Google and type in the type of plane or location and find better information and photos. BTW. Was the photographer who took the picture of the Ďhoodedí photographer taking the photo, absconded and hauled off to jail for questioning?
