The holidays and airports go hand-in-hand, and it can be a harrowing holiday tradition. And this year, changes at Dallas Love Field may prove a challenge for travelers. KERA’s Courtney Collins explains.

Dallas, TX – A man who crashed through a Love Field security gate and gained access to the runway has been sentenced to 22 years in federal prison.

47-year old Michael Browne was driving a stolen truck in August of 2010 when he led Dallas police on the high speed chase. Browne pleaded guilty to a charge of interfering with security screening personnel.

The incident prompted aviation officials to investigate and strengthen access to secure areas at Love Field.
