Every issue Air Watch provides our readership with news of the incidents of hijacking and sabotage, occurences of unruly passenger behaviour, verdicts in trials and sentences given, threats issued, and some of the happenings which just cannot be otherwise classified. Skyjacks, bombings, brawls, bomb hoxes, rocket attacks, intoxicated passengers, assaults, cyber attacks, insider crime, acts of cockpit laser illumination and close encounters with drones...Air Watch is your round-up of the news from the two-month period preceeding each issue.
