Takeover Safety System

Tue Sep 18, 2001 10:22 am

KTLA 5 news in L.A. has reported that there is a company that is developing a system that would lockout the manual controls in the event of a hijacking and take the aircraft to the nearest airport.I did not get the name of the company though.

I think that is a really good idea, I heard it to. I think it would be great if they did that.
