In this Aug. 28, 2010 photo, pilot Martha King steps out of a Cessna with her hands raised on the orders of police in Santa Barbara, Calif., as the plane was flagged as stolen by an aviation security computer system but the plane was actually owned by the pilots, two of the most famous aviation figures in the United States, John and Martha King. The Federal Aviation Administration's aircraft registry is missing key information on who owns about a third of the private and commercial planes in the U.S., a gap the agency fears could be exploited by terrorists and drug traffickers.
