20 years ago in the Homer News:
Following the crash of TWA Flight 800 the previous week off the coast of New York, the Era Airlines, which flew out of the Homer Airport, bumped up security regulations to strictly enforce checking passengers’ identification cards before boarding. Although the policy has been in effect, it has not always been enforced, said Joe Sprague, director of marketing of Era Airlines. Passengers may also be asked questions about baggage and ownership of luggage, he said.
