I saw a captain being interviewed on the news. He said
if you are on a plane you better keep your seat belt on
because if someone tries to highjack his plane, he will maneuver the plane in such a way that the highjacker will not be left standing. The rules have changed!

Hello, are things real quiet here or is it my imagination?

I was in the USAF Reserve before the Gulf War started and was activated for that. What is going on is very reminiscent of that era 10 years ago.

Perhaps, it may be the time for our society to take the position ’ there will be no hijackings’ as the policy of the USAF if I remember that correctly as a air crew member back then.

I know this is ’ off topic’, however we need to take a new look at the way we do things, in America, imo.

I think that last week changed the rules for highjackings. A passenger who highjacks an airliner now must now expect a LOT of resistance. I expect to see a lot more captains packing heat now.
