Worried about the poor organisation at the Daisy City Airport, the airport officials decided to organise all information related to the airport using a Database Management System. You have been hired to design the database and your first task is to organise the information about all the airplanes stationed and maintained at the airport. The relevant information is follows:

• Every airplane has a registration number and each airplane is of a specific model.

• The airport accommodates a number of airplane models, and each model is identified by a model number (e.g DC3410) and has a capacity and a weight.

• A number of technicians work at the airport. You need to store the name, SSN, address, phone number, and salary of each technician.

• Each technician is an expert on one or more plane model(s), and his or her expertise may overlap with that of other technicians. This information about technicians must also be recorded.

• Traffic controllers must have an annual medical examination. For each traffic controller, you must store the date of the most recent exam.

• All airport employees (including technicians) belong to a union. You must store the union membership number of each employee. You can assume that each employee is uniquely identified by a social security number.

• The airport has a number of tests that are used periodically to ensure that airplanes are still airworthy. Each test has a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) test number, a name, and a maximum possible score.

• The FAA requires the airport to keep track of each time a given airplane is tested by a given technician using a given test. For each testing event, the information needed is the date, the number of hours the technician spent doing the test, and the score the airplane received on the test.

Draw an ER diagram for the airport database described in the above scenario. Indicate the various attributes of each entity and relationship set and specify the key and participation constraints for each relationship set.
