Retired Airliners - Scrap Or Huge Cruise Missles?

Yeah, it might be expensive and totally ineffective, but it would be a lot of fun.

Anything beats the guillotine.

Compared to actual cruise missiles, they would be sitting ducks to be shot down because of their large size and limited manueverability.

The only reason why the events of September 11 occured is that we weren't EXPECTING it.

Yes. Hence my saying that it would be expensive and totally ineffective.

Still, I could think of a worse fate for an L1011.

I've got a better idea, turn them into homes.
