Mysterious GPS Disruptions Spread Across Texas; FAA Issues Warning to Pilots

The FAA told Bloomberg that it is investigating possible jamming of the global positioning system (GPS) that aircraft use to guide them to runways and during their flights. The FAA also confirmed that the Dallas airport runway was shut down temporarily.
