TSA Employee Damages 9 American Eagle Aircraft, Delays 40 Flights…Inspector Clouseau: “Even I’m Not that Stupid”

For some reason a TSA inspector decided to check out 9 American Eagle aircraft on the ground a O’Hare overnight on Monday and in the process managed to damage 9 planes and cause 40 flight delays.  From reading this thread at Flyertalk, the TSA shouldn’t have been out there on the first place.  But they went, and decided to enter the airplanes by stepping on something that is clearly marked, “Don’t step.”  The inspector was reportedly ensuring that the planes “were secure from tampering,” which they were until the the TSA got there.
