luxembourg germany. many decorated airmen have passed through, but one of the most legendary was col. john boyd, a skilled and daring pilot credited with changing "the art of war." ((10:01:09 jerry white/nellis historian: "he was the first guy to mathmatically describe dog fighting. and once you can mathmatically describe something, you can figure out how to make it better, and his imput was crucial in the both the f-15 and f-16 design.."))

pieces of luggage were reported mishandled on domestic flights. now one of the nation's biggest airlines is betting on new technology that could help it lose fewer bags. kris van cleave reports. the rate airlines mishandle bags - meaning they were lost, late or damaged - is on the decline, (gfx1 in) but around 1 in every 300 passengers will have it happen to them. on this day that passenger was ron mullenix.

these digital baggage tags work better than the ink and paper barcodes that can smudge and wrinkle. henry harteveldt is an airline industry analyst. (sot-henry harteveldt/airline industry analyst) "every time an airline loses a suitcase and can't get it delivered to you at the baggage claim, it costs them about $100 to bring it your home or office or hotel. so that's a big expense that the airline would like to avoid." (on cam tag) delta's new luggage system will go online at 84 airports across the u-s in the coming months. the airline believes it luggage by 10 percent, which is likely in the range of 20-thousand bags a year. kris van cleave, cbs news, new york. we'll be right back........///
