Security Levels Remain The Same At Local Airports

Local airports say they haven't been asked to increase security following the death of Osama bin Laden.

At the Coastal Carolina Regional Airport in New Bern, it was business as usual Tuesday. There have been no outside orders for them to heighten security.

Passengers and family members we spoke with say they still feel safe to fly.

While there have been no orders for tighter security, airport director Tom Braaten says he has instructed the airport security to be vigilant. "All of us are directed to be just heads up so we're asking security folks to walk around a little more, take a look and look for anything that might be suspicious."

Braaten says he thinks only if there's a threat to airports, or a particular airport, will their security increase.
