Wish you lot would fuck of with the bomb in plane threat, I fly on Thursday. :lol:

 

Anyway, I now it was not bombs but 9/11 maybe should be considered when estimating the damages these Looneys have done.

I don't think the alleged bombs would have taken the plane down personally. And after the first one was detonated, you can bet none of the others would have been.

 

Still that's what terrorism is about, disproportionate fear of death, used by terrorists and governments alike, and creating maximum chaos in the process.

9/11 took the US by surprise with its pants down though. It's hard to assemble a bomb on a plane without the element of surprise.

 

I think there was a plot but it has been exaggerated and would have been difficult to pull off. We'll have to wait and see, obviously.

I made the same point as Jimbo over on N-O when Rob posted it there. Also, I love the way he thinks he knows whats going on and what the current threat is on the basis of reading some stats in 'Flight' magazine or whatever the fuck it is :lol:

The bombs were already assembled tbh, just needed detonation using a disposable camera flash

using that same logic Ive managed to find this from the Japanese archives.

 

Emperor, we've had word the Americans have atom bombs,

Okaaaay, do me a study to see how many people killed so far

 

right we've got it here

 

1939 - 0 killed

1940 - 0 killed

1941 - 0 killed

1942 - 1 bloke working on the project slipped on a stray molecule and died.

1943 - 0 killed

1944 - a herd of wildebeest and 3 blokes out camping in Nevada died in a test

 

So thats 4 blokes and some livestock then? Ahhhh stupid American pigs, no threat there then.

"Flight" has been the weekly journal of the aviation community in the UK since 1905

 

they publish a six monthly accident analysis that is considered to be totally authoritative by IATA, the CAA, the airlines and Govts.

 

anyone with half a brain might think they knew what they are talking about............

Anyone without their head up their arse (so that's you out obviously) would be able to see that I meant stats re: bombs on planes in the past prove nothing about the current threat. And how great that threat is is, frankly, something neither of us know anything about. Although I'm not pretending I do :razz:

Flew to Hamburg on Friday morning and back again on Monday night and didn't get delayed or blown up or ANYTHING. I reckon it's just a giant conspiracy to sell more Boots Meal Deals airside.

Boy boards plane without tickets

 

An investigation is under way into how a 12-year-old boy managed to board a plane at Gatwick without tickets during the security alert.

The boy, reported to be from Penrith in Cumbria, but thought to have run away from a care home in Birkenhead, Merseyside, was heading to Lisbon.

 

He was discovered on Monday's 0600 BST Monarch flight before it took off.

 

Security officers and Sussex Police were informed after cabin crew found the boy on the plane.
