>>>Airsicknessbag, what are you talking about? Armoured cockpits don't work? If hijackers are on a
plane, yes, armoured cockpits will not stop them for klling passengers, but it will stop them from
getting into the cockpit and crashing into a skyscraper. The pilots will be able to land the plane
safely, no matter what horror is happening in the passenger cabins.
Well, I´m talking about the "normal" hijacking - the hijacker has a demand, and if that is not met, he´ll blow the plane up. Pilots are trained, and rightly so, to do what the hijacker wants, to eventually bring an end to the situation without bloodshed. Show me one pilot who cold-bloodedly would let the hijackers kill the passengers while he is safe and cosy behind his armoured cockpit door, flying the plane safely into the nearest airport.
Bank hold-ups are the best example - after the introduction of bullet-proof glass, the trend just shifted from simple robberies to taking hostages.
