Air France: Man Found In Cockpit Not An Employee

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Air France says a French man arrested after sitting inside the cockpit of a plane scheduled to fly from Philadelphia is not one of its employees.
    
The airline said Friday that Philippe Jernnard was not wearing the airline's uniform, did not have a badge verifying he was crew member or was not carrying any Air France crew baggage.
    
Jernnard, a ticketed passenger, was arrested Wednesday night after he was found by the crew of a US Airways flight bound for West Palm Beach, Fla., sitting in the jump seat behind the pilot.
    
He was wearing a white shirt with an Air France logo and black jacket with epaulets on the shoulders. Officer Christine O'Brien said police also found him in possession of a counterfeit Air France crew member ID card.

  • Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Fire lined vs. fire containment: What's the difference?

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 1:48 PM EDT2018-07-18 17:48:19 GMT

    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - We've had a lot of questions about what firefighters  are talking about when they say that the fire is 100 percent lined, but that the Upriver-Beacon fire is 0% contained. Here's the gist, according to firefighters: Containment is essentially their faith in the strength of the fire line. So when they say there is a line around 100 percent of the fire, but 0 percent containment, it means they are concerned that the fire could jump the line.
