The two *Iraqi Airways* flights were the first international flights since 19-90 -- when sanctions were imposed on Saddam Hussein's regime. *Iraqi Airways* will fly once daily to Jordan and Syria. Insurgents have been taking aim at flights over Baghdad International with rocket fire. To avoid being hit -- ALL commercial flights are being forced to make sharp maneuvers while staying within a secure perimeter over the airport. The skies overhead aren't the only worry for the Iraqi Airliner. The road leading to the airport has been known for acts of terror-- including a car bomb set off yesterday --that injured three U.S. soldiers.
