Thwarted terror plot slows air traffic

I woke up this morning to Marketplace's report on the apparent targeting by would-be terrorists of U.S.-bound flights from London. (Details here.) Since then we've had live coverage of a Washington news conference by Homeland Security officials, Cathy Wurzer's interview with Pat Hogan of the Metropolitan Airports Commission and a live report from MPR's Mark Zdechlik on how travelers are dealing with slowdowns.
The incident will be the focus of Kerri Miller's first hour of Midmorning at 9 a.m.. And stay tuned throughout the day for continuing coverage from NPR and MPR.
