Last Wednesday, LAX pretty much shut down for several hours because a Cold War-era spy plane flew into the airspace monitored by the LA Air Route Traffic Control Center (which covers all of the major airports in the Southwest). An errant U-2's "altitude and route apparently overloaded a computer system called ERAM, which generates display data for air-traffic controllers. Back-up computer systems also failed." Nothing to worry about, probably! [NBC]
