A warning’s been renewed for Iowa pilots of small planes. Loitering in the wrong place at the wrong time can be seen as a threat, and that even goes for private pilots. After renewed warnings this week that terrorists could hijack another jetliner and next time try to crash it into a dam, populated city or nuclear power plant, briefers are reminding pilots not to contribute to public fears. Even though small planes were not used in the attacks, briefers at the Fort Dodge flight service station confirm private pilots are being warned against circling, flying low or slow, or even sightseeing too long around sites that could be considered targets of potential attack.
