2167 RAYBURN BOUSE OFFICE BUILDING

suMMARY or subjecT MATTER

The Subcommittee will receive testimony on aviation security matters from government and industry witnesses as well as from families of the Pan American World Airways Flight 103 victims. specific topics and issues will include:

(1) A review of what the Federal Aviation Administration and other government agencies have learned with respect to aviation security from the Pan Am 103 accident, including the effectiveness of systems to provide timely security intelligence and information to airlines, airports, and aviation authorities.

(2) A review of the adequacy of DOT/FAA regulatory actions on aviation security since 1985 when public and Congressional interest in security was heightened by the TWA hijacking and other incidents. The policy question of whether U.S. and foreign carriers should be subject to the same security standards at foreign airports will also be addressed.

(3) The status of U.S. Government efforts to obtain aviation security clauses in bilateral civil aviation agreements.

(4) A review of U.S. government actions under the Foreign Airport Security Act of 1985.

(5) A review of the FAA's programs to develop and disseminate explosive detection technology. The policy question of whether the government, airlines or airports should pay for the wide implementation of this technology will be addressed.

(6) The consideration of any legislative proposals to improve aviation security.

THE SECURITY PROBLEM

Pan American flight 103 crashed in Scotland on December 21, 1988 after being blown apart by a powerful bomb. 270 people were killed, including eleven on the ground. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and foreign law enforcement authorities continue to investigate and search for those responsible.
