FAA Has Lost Track Of 100,000 Planes

The Federal Aviation Administration has lost track of more than 100,000 planes.

The agency said it is unsure of who owns nearly a third of all private and commercial planes in the U.S.

Records are in such a mess, the FAA fears criminals could buy planes without the government's knowledge or use the registration numbers of other aircraft to evade new computer systems designed to track suspicious flights.

To fix this problem, all aircraft owners will be ordered to reregister their planes.

And then next year the FAA will begin canceling the registration certificates of all the aircrafts so they have to register anew.
