The BBC are reporting today that another “Suspicious object” (almost certainly meaning meaning a bomb) has been found on a plane in Northern Ireland.  It was only 18 months ago that the printer toner bomb plot was foiled when a bomb was smuggled onto air cargo headed to the USA from the Yemen, which lead to widespread tightening of the rules on screening air cargo.

We developed our Label Lock tamper proof security tape just for this application, which is used to seal shrink wrapped air fright and boxes once screening to ensure that no suspicious objects are inserted into the cargo.  If you have not seen this tape in action before when used for air freight, then you can watch it in this Youtube Video.
