As the political community turned desperate for any clues, speculation moved toward several darkhorse candidates including Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the so-called "hockey mom" credited with reforms of her out-of-the-way state.

A Gulfstream IV from Anchorage, Alaska, flew into Middletown Regional Airport in Butler County near Cincinnati about 10:15 p.m. Thursday, said Rich Bevis, airport manager. He said several people came off the plane, including a woman and two teens, but there was no confirmation of who was aboard.

"They were pretty much hustled off. They came right down the ramp, jumped in some vans here and off they went," Bevis said. "It was all hush, hush."

How nice!- So much for airport security and scrutiny.I guess it goes like this at our "open air market" type airport- " Somebody came to our airport after hours, but I really don't know who it was, they didn't identify themselves, when they were due, what flight plan they had, if they would need fuel, or how many were in the arriving party" and, "we didn't approach them to ask". "I really don't know who's coming and going at my airport". Wouldn't it be important to have some indication of security at the airport or is there nothing there worth protecting? Perhaps have a rent-a-cop? Is the airport manned 24/7? Just asking.

I wouldn't be so quick to rule out that the good governor was indeed at Hook Field. You never know and for national security reasons, we might never know.

Jungle boots- Just asking a question out of curiosity- How did Channel 9 know who was on that aircraft, but OUR airport personnel apparently didn't have a clue? It doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling about the airport operations competence level/surveillance, that's all. I'd like to know who was coming and going ,under these circumstances, if I was the airport manager, wouldn't you? OR- am I wrong in asking for a little common sense to prevail here?

It would appear that Channel 9 didn't know until after the fact. She flew in at 10:15 p.m. Thursday night and stayed at The Manchester under an assumed name.    The Channel 9 crew is there during the daylight. Probably the following morning when news reports started to surface.

The airport manager didn't really breach any security protocol.   The news reports didn't surface with his comments until early the following more after she landed. From news reports, It seemed that he was aware of the flight and the flight plan.
