for attending the Manhattan
session. These agencies will meet
and discuss the logistics for JFK
movements, staging areas, security
deployments and related activities
Terminals One and Four will be
very busy with international diplomatic
entourages and security will
be tight. Diplomatic aircraft will be
hustled off the fi eld as soon as possible
and many will be fl own to Stewart
International Airport for longer
Recently there has been a lot of
talk about unauthorized drones fl ying
over the area airports. According
to one source, the FAA and FBI
will be monitoring and will call in
local law enforcement if necessary.
There will be a noticeable ,and
not so noticeable, increase of security
personnel around the airport
as hundreds of attendees arrive
by plane and transported by black
cars, vans and blue tinted license
plated cars to and from the airport.
