Light Planes to Be Fitted with Anti-9/11 Systems

Light planes in Israel will be fitted with security systems to prevent their theft and use in 9/11-style terror attacks, the Ministry of Transportation announced Tuesday.

The systems will lock the planes and send an automatic warning signal to a special control room if a "hostile element" attempts to break into the plane or move it.

The warning systems will use independent and secure power sources and radio frequencies, to thwart any attempt to disable them.
