The F15H model is the two-seat, hijack-intercept model. Pilot flies up under the distressed aircraft, back-seater, a special counter-hijack special agent, pulls "Intsertion" lever which activates only the rear ejection seat. The seat-back is reinforced with a hull penetrator that allows the agent to gain entry through the underside of the airliner. Once on board he terminates the hijack. Command Post, Out. carry on.

They usually don't even have time to thank him.

Earl of Chives: Great idea. I bet they didn't have to circle waiting for a runway to open up either. VIP all the way.

GoodyearPimp: Uhm, dare I ask what the F15s were going to do? If you've hijacked the plane, I'm pretty sure you're holding all the cards. The F15's don't have magic bullets that are accurate enough to just kill the hijacker while allowing the plane to maintain integrity.


They're going to shoot it down.

You know, to prevent it from colliding with tall buildings. Not like that is very plausible...

In my mind, it's worth buying a burner phone to call in a threat just so I can watch my flight get escorted by F-16s, unless they "shadow" the plane out of sight, defeating the entire purpose.

I'd feel like I was on AF1.

generallyso: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: I can launch ICBMs by whistling into the phone. I can also make BMs in the restroom.

But can you make free phone calls?


Does anyone else remember back in the early 90s when you could make some payphones give you a free call by shorting the metal cable under the blue plastic shield to the metal disc in the middle of the mic with a paper clip?

They dont shoot magic bullets, the backseat co-pilot of the F-15 jumps onto the airliner's wing and sneaks quietly through the door into the piltots seat of the airliner and saves everyone.
