Well, I don´t think an Israeli paper (Haaretz?) would smuggle a real bomb onboard an El Al plane, anyway El Al stopped flying to Stockholm because they weren´t allowed to have their own armed guards, but they resumed a couple of years later, they solved it like they had to sign out a gun and then pa...Jump to post
Well, 48 ordered A380 so far and Lufthansa haven´t bought any yet (they´re talking about 15 planes?).

to die is hard to stop....
Dear all! I´m afraid there´s no quick "fix" to this problem, my suggestion is that any individual that enter the plane, airplane personell, cleaners, mecanics and passengers shall pass trough a gate that "xray" them, this technology exist already but have not been put to use because of privacy restr...Jump to post
