LAX Missile Attack?

WirNit has a story about an apparent missile attack on a plane out of LAX

A pilot on an American Airlines flight out of LAX to Chicago over Thanksgiving weekend called the Tower to say that as they were climbing after takeoff at about 6600 feet they saw a rocket fly up past them and just miss the airplane. The FBI interviewed the pilots and have detemined that it was probably a flare or a bottle rocket.

Update: DECEMBER14, 2004 FOX News reported a year ago that

Counterterrorism officials are beefing up security at Los Angeles International Airport to protect jetliners from terrorists armed with shoulder-launched missiles.

I suspect there has been some “reaming” done over this embarassment!
