Think of the carbon footprint by diverting a flight from scheduled route, the inconvenience to passengers and crew, the debriefings, reams of mind numbing paperwork.
If practicable, the miscreant should have been ejected from the plane, at 25,000 feet. You just _know_ the entire plane would have erupted in raucous applause. It’s way past time to stop messing around with these clowns.
“It might if they wanted to hijack the plane and not just blow it up.”
As I understand it, they gas up these planes to get to the destination with a near empty tank. (landing is much safer that way)
It kind of limits where any hijacked plane can go...
I saw that episode. That show is so fake it’s ridiculous.
I know. The show’s a trainwreck that’s hard to look away from when there’s nothing else on the boob tube.
Hmm a boob job implant explosive. How would the TSA check for that? I see a possible career change.
Do you really want to go to BANGor if you think you might have a bomb? And on Boeing jet. The same sound Wile E. Coyote hears from his current invention before he crashes
“An actual terrorist threat would not involve announcing that one has an implanted device, imo.”
But now the terrorists know how prepared we are and how we will handle implanted bombs. And only one person has to go to jail, pretty cheap compared to a plane.

On several occasions, decades ago....I had to fly out of Charleston AFB...and of course, we stopped in Bangor every single time. The excuse was that we just wouldn’t have enough fuel. After the 707’s were all retired, that was the end of any halts in Bangor. They made a ton of money off the airlines for years and years. Today? I doubt if they have more than six planes a year make unscheduled stops there.
