There's a sob who should never be allowed to fly again, for the rest of his life. He should get used to long car, and boat trips, when he gets out of prison, and he should spend a long while in prison too.

That's not a suicide attempt. That's five counts of attempted murder.

The maximum sentence for hijacking an aircraft is 40 years in federal prison.

The media likes to use the term "teen" for anyone 13-19 as if those are all the same class of people (and bizarrely sometimes for people outside those ages). They also like to use terms like "grandmother" if they have kids who had kids.

Good luck with that one. You're basically putting out of commission several dozen highly-used aircraft types if you do that.

If your goal was to commute suicide in this manner - why not just jump out of the plane? It'd be pretty easy In a small aircraft like this and you wouldn't depressurize the cabin in the process.  Everyone else would be horrified but they'd be alive and well at least.

These are really small planes - they seat 8 to 9 passengers. Walling off the cockpit would be a major redesign to the extent of probably having to lose two passenger seats.

I always figured if I were going to re-create the 9/11 attacks, I'd do it with small aircraft loaded with easy-to-acquire explosives - gunpowder, fertilizer/diesel, jugs of gasoline, etc - and use a bit of planning and timing to attack a few dozen soft targets (hospitals, schools, shopping centers) all across the country within the span of 10-15 minutes.

No need to hijack commercial aircraft, and if you plan it carefully enough and buy the explosive/incendiary ingredients with cash, it would be quite easy to keep a secret until it was too late.

Certainly not advocating this, since I'm not a terrorist, just saying that if I were inclined to commit acts of terrorism, this is the route I'd choose.

The man told Trooper Jason Bohac he tried to end his life while on the plane and indicated he had spoken with behavioral health officials before but felt it hadn't helped...

"It hadn't helped" would seem to be a huge understatement.

I dunno. If I was a teen in Alaska and didn't live in that town from Northern Exposure where the two hottest and horniest women in all Alaska lived. Well. You know. Weird shiat could happen. Like trying to commandeer a flight to that one aforementioned town with two hot horny women. But don't do it! It's wrong and your life is now fuct Moran!

i have a buddy that does helo tours in CA.  he had a passenger book a tour for himself and his wife but only he shows. they go up anyway and as they are are flying over the ocean when the dude opens the door and pushes himself off the seat and into the sky.   at least that a-hole didn't try to take anyone with him.

If you want to kill yourself, fine. Just do it at home. Hang yourself in your room or blow your brains out in the bath tub. But don't be an attention whore about it and try to take other people with you.
 
2021-07-09 4:29:17 PM  
Kid should have just found a bigger plane. Something where there's just millions of people stuck being passengers and the vehicle carrying them along can be driven straight into the ground, just for the dollar bills and lulz. That's the way to make it in the suicide-murder game.

It is always weird to fly in those small planes where you can sit right next to the pilot or right behind him. I always wondered what would happen if a crazy guy grabbed the controls and tried to crash us.

Here's a pic I took where I was more concerned the woman's giant purse was gonna accidentally push into the stick or some button and crash us.

In the wake of 9/11 there where constant broadcasts of reporters standing in front of structures saying things like "If terrorists were to attack *this* bridge, it would kill hundreds and wreck the local economy as no one would be able to get to work or the store to get food. "

Terrorists want to kill people, not the economy.

I'm more concerned with articles that explain the basics of bomb making for people too dumb to have learned it in high school science class every time a pipe bomb is found.

Every normal adult and most kids SHOULD be able to whip up an IED on their own without instructions. It's very basic concepts and there's multiple routes to achieve the goal of boom. That's just a proper scientific education.

What I don't want is the person who can't figure it out on their own to be given pointers by the damb news complete with diagrams and ingredients.

I'd go after the oil refineries not located immediately in big cities. I could name a half dozen right now that fit the bill, plus the Soo Locks. The Soo Locks would be a stretch goal because two governments watch them but like a third of our economy and almost all our heavy industry relies on them. Cars, tractors, appliances, buildings, etc.

There are about another half dozen soft targets that I know of that would cause widespread disruption. One of the easiest is to just keep on keeping on and watch Texas suffer one systemic power failure after another due to "weather."
