Gyrocopter shows hole in US security

A Florida postman who steered his gyrocopter through protected Washington airspace for nearly 50km to the US Capitol "should have been blown out of the air", a top politician has said.

Chairman of the House of Representatives' oversight committee Jason Chaffetz said Doug Hughes was "lucky to be alive".

The incident has exposed a glaring gap in the government's security.
