Cleanup at LAX runway turns into treasure hunt of sorts
A plane lands at LAX, left, as airport workers pick up debris to clear the runway. Participants included LAX-badged workers, airline representatives and other tenants, service providers and employees of the Federal Aviation Administration and Los Angeles World Airports.
Bolts and pieces of metal, right, were among the items picked up along the runway. LAX officials say foreign object debris is a major problem because it can result in costly damage to aircraft and support vehicles, delays in flights schedules and injuries to airport personnel.
So-called foreign object debris is anything
that potentially can impair an aircraft's ability to fly. It can be as
small as coins or as large as vehicle parts.
