Japan air traffic controller leaks Obama flight plan

An air traffic controller in Japan leaked classified Air Force One flight plans of US President Barack Obama’s visit to Tokyo last year on his personal blog, press reports said Saturday.

The incident, reported by the mass-circulation Yomiuri and other media, came to light amid a worldwide travel alert issued by the United States ahead of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The reports said the controller, in his 50s, obtained the flight plans — detailing scheduled routes, transit times, and flight altitude — from computer screen shots he obtained while working at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
