In-flight Attack
What do we know about the alleged accused in today's pilot stabbing? Was she a ticking time bomb? Were there opportunities to prevent what happened today? Donna-Marie Lever looks at the troubled past of Asha Abdille.

Aircraft Security
There have been reports the attacker was demonstrating some pretty strange behaviour, both on the trip to the airport and in the terminal itself. The fact a person was able to get on-board the flight and use a weapon obviously raises the question of how secure and how safe is regional air travel. Just a couple of hours after the terrifying mid-air ordeal we sent reporter Michael Holland to test security. See how how easy it is to get on board a flight unquestioned and with an array of potential weapons.

Security Rules
The head of Aviation Security, Mark Everitt, joins us live to discuss whether security screening for passengers on regional flights needs to be tightened.

Blind Ambition
This weekend, New Zealand wrestling champion Clint Hall is aiming for gold. It's the Oceania championships. But unlike all the other wrestlers going, he won't actually see any of his competitors. That's because Clint's been blind since the age of two. He doesn't see it as a disability, just an extra challenge to his ultimate goal of winning at the Olympics. Gill Higgins talks with a determined young man who has set his sights very high.

Sheryl Crow
She's always seemed like the rocking older sister. She may have sung ''all I want to do is have some fun'', but really, she wanted to change the world. She's been changing her own world, adopting a little boy, scolding George Bush's right-hand man over global warming, surviving cancer, watching the music business model fall apart, and wondering where she fits in.
