Annual Report to Congress on Civil Aviation Security: January 1, 1995 - December 31, 1995 [open pdf - 195KB]
The year 1995 was one of many terrorist attacks, but for civilian aviation it should be recorded as year of disasters averted. Of particular significance was the explosive device hidden on a Phillipine airliner flying from Manila to Osaka, via Cebu, on December 11, 1994. On detonation, this devie killed a Japanese student. This event turned out be the prelude for attempts to attack several American carrier flights in East Asia in January 1995. The FA adopted extensive security measures overseas to protect against this threat and additional measures were required at U.S. airports. The FAA also issued emergency security program amendments to 27 foreign air carriers operating to the United States from the Asia-Pacific region to address a specific threat in that region of the world.
