shiat. On the upside, the plane is in Istanbul, so the hijackers will be in for a good turking.

Did he really think he'd get away with it, with as much security there is around the Olympic areas? I'm more surprised he didn't blow himself up BECAUSE he failed to enter...

My biggest concern when this kind of stuff happens is the inevitable overreaction by the TSA.

B.L.Z. Bub: How much you wanna bet there wasn't actually a bomb on the plane? Why would a real terrorist make that announcement?


Everything will become clear, once they get the electrodes attached to his nuts.  Give them an hour or so.

nekom: After 9/11 airplane hijackings are virtually impossible.  I'm sure they have fortified their cockpit doors as well.  And nobody will believe that they're just going to land somewhere.  "I have a bomb!"   "Oh yeah?  Well you better set it off right now motherfarker cause we're gonna kick your ass"


I doubt the Russian would let an unidentifed plane into their airspace.  This was doomed from the begining. They'd scramble the bears and the plane would have been toast.

Yeah, but come on, the popcorn.

He posted something retarted, and then attached popcorn meme. He could at least have made a farking sockpuppet for that.

Putin on the ritz already?  Silly muslims, don't you know he's looking for a reason to go full Stalin on your ass?

Long-term strategic planning doesn't seem to be the forte of terrorists.  Just ask Osama.

GalFriday: Why are the passengers still on the plane while they search for the bomb?
Shouldn't it be:
Step 1: GET THE PASSENGERS OFF OF THE PLANE
Step 2:  Search for the bomb


Yeah that got a decent head scratch from me too
 
2014-02-07 01:55:52 PM  
Wait, the airline involved was Pegasus Air?

Couldn't they have sent the Wonderbolts to intercept the plane?  :D

That is why I doubt it was an attempted terrorist attack. More like a crazy person who didn't take their meds acting out.

Wasn't that an episode of Alias?  My wife was watching something like that a while back.

"When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go, exactly, there's no - and you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that. It's a real problem."

Sochi is on the Black Sea, a plane diverting from the Black Sea could leave an air traffic corridor and have an under 30 min flight time to Sochi. Assuming Russia would want to do a visual id pre shootdown and don't have fighters already up you are looking at 15 min before visual identification at least and than another 5 before shoot down is authorized. Also how would a Bear with 2 autocannons in the tail and a flight speed lower than any Boeing or Airbus jet liner do the shoot down?

The pilot had the choice between potentially blowing up or going to Sochi, which apparently is a worse choice than dying...
