Thursday’s installment of Nightline opened with a segment about security at Miami International Airport and “Airport 24/7: Miami“, the Travel Channel reality series about the people who run Florida’s biggest airport.

Reporter Bill Weir interviews the airport’s Director of Security and “Airport 24/7″‘s most memorable personality, Lauren Stover, and cameras follow cops who raid a plane during a training drill.

For the avgeeks, the plane they used is a Boeing 737-400 (N773AS) owned by charter carrier Sky King, which had a previous life at Alaska Airlines.
