On June 4th 2009 two separate incidents took place with airplanes of US Airways, a man, Damien Young, on the Philadelphia PA flight to Phoenix AZ Flight Number 1195 scheduled to leave at 7:10am, had smuggled onboard a 9mm handgun. Roshid Milledge, a U.S. Airways employee, aided and abetted Young's possession and concealment of the dangerous weapon on board the aircraft.
A man, Raed Abduhl-Rahman Alsaif ,24,on the Tampa FL flight to Phoenix AZ, flight Number 1077 that was scheduled leave at 7:45am, attempted to smuggle onboard a 7 inch butcher knife. Raed Abduhl-Rahman Alsaif was a graduate of the of the Islamic Saudi Academy Alexandria, VA Class of 2003. New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer has recently questioned whether the Islamic Saudi Academy in Alexandria, Virginia, is another example of radical Islamic madrassas funded by and linked to terrorism here and abroad.
All of the men, Damien Young, 29, Roshid Milledge, 38, and Raed Abduhl-Rahman Alsaif, 24, are being charged under the same Federal violation, Title 49, United States Code, Section 46505(b)(1). See the Federal Complaint of Damien Young and Roshid Milledge, click here.
Same day, same U.S. Airways airline, same destination Phoenix AZ, same approximate leave time before 8:00am;
A). 7:10am June 4th 2009 U.S. Airways Flight Number 1195 from Philadelphia to Phoenix AZ

I was told a long time ago by a FBI agent in Sarasota Fl that there are no coincidences in terrorism.
