A very close friend of mine is a airline Pilot. He said they took away HIS OWN small pocket knife yesterday while getting ready to reposition a 767. Keep in mind that there were NO PASSENGERS. Give me a break.
He and some of his fellow Pilots have their own plan now to foil hijackers. He said you would be surprised how much punishment the aircraft can take and they will fly upside down very well and are very capable of sudden and very violent maneuvers. So my advice to you is keep your seat belts tight if you are not part of the pro-active group to take on the hijackers. I may be fighting the bastards on the ceiling, but he will not get into that cockpit as long as IÂ’m alive… I think all the big guys should be front seats now.
