Sounds like a crazy person, not a legit terrorist.

I'll need a lot of popcorn to watch this disaster. It could go on for days.

If you "stick" a landing on snow or ice you are doing it wrong and it will probably require surgery.

Perhaps he was just trying to land the plane is Sochi so that it could be used as a hotel.  From what I hear, a hijacked plane is better accommodations than are currently available.

Danger Mouse: 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.

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?

Smeggy Smurf: Captain Steroid: My God, we couldn't even get through the Opening Ceremony without a terrorist threat? :-(

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.

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"

Wonder what they cut off in Turkey when you steal a plane?

They're obviously not capable of handling the security at an event of this magnitude which means the Games are forfeited, the men's hockey gold medal goes to USA and Dennis Rodman is now President of North Korea.
