Product Description

All 50 pieces are laid out. You're ready to build your own motorized jet engine testing lab. Following easy-to-understand instructions, you assemble the turbine and compressor unit. It goes together without a hitch. Then you're on to the rear engine housing. Next, the thruster control arm and speed drum. Finally, you slide the transparent cover over the engine and lift the thruster control. Whoosh. The engine lights up as the fans engage and start to spin. You stand back to admire your work.

Report: Hackers broke into FAA air traffic control systems

Hackers have broken into the air traffic control mission-support systems of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration several times in recent years, according to an Inspector General report sent to the FAA this week.
In February, hackers compromised an FAA public-facing computer and used it to gain access to personally identifiable information, such as Social Security numbers, on 48,000 current and former FAA employees, the report said.
Last year, hackers took control of FAA critical network servers and could have shut them down, which would have seriously disrupted the agency's mission-support network, the report said. Hackers took over FAA computers in Alaska, becoming "insiders," according to the report dated Monday.
Then, taking advantage of interconnected networks, hackers later stole an administrator's password in Oklahoma, installed "malicious codes" with the stolen password and compromised the FAA domain controller in the Western Pacific Region, giving them the access to more than 40,000 FAA user IDs, passwords, and other data used to control a portion of the mission-support network, the report said.
