Man accused of plot to attack Pentagon, Capitol with model airplanes

Planes

A Massachusetts man allegedly plotted to attack the Capitol and Pentagon with remote-controlled planes loaded with C-4, the authorities tell the AP. The arrest was part of a sting conducted by federal agents:

Wednesday's arrest was the latest of several terrorism cases to spring from federal sting operations. In other cases, reputed would-be terrorists became involved in fictional plots against various targets, such as Dallas skyscrapers or a Chicago nightclub. In this case, though, authorities say Ferdaus planned the scheme.
