Someone trying to shoot down aircraft at Spokane airport?

Question: I have been told by a reliable sorce that an airliner was shot at with a surface-to-air missle at the Spokane airport. Why the cover up? -- James Harris, Athol, Idaho

Answer: According to the airport police chief, there was no surface-to-air missile fired at the Spokane airport. That is certainly a news event we would have heard about and reported immediately. I can tell you that in 1997, some teenage boys shot a hobby rocket into the air as a plane was taking off. -- Carla Savalli, city editor
