Tuesday, November 26, 2006, at 5P
To what extremes will one man go when he's desperate? With possible unemployment lurking in his future, Auburn Calloway, a distraught FedEx employee, risks killing himself and everyone else on FedEx flight 705. Armed with several hammers and a spear gun, Calloway launches a lethal attack on the crew. But they fight back with every weapon they can get their hands on, including the plane itself. Join NGC as eyewitness descriptions vividly recreate both the horror and heroism of this Suicide Attack.
Old story, but hey, I guess if you are one of those few flight crew folks for a private airline that doesn't carry passengers, then his is for you!
Years ago (I forgot when, it was awhile ago) a UPS employee tried to take over a UPS plane (UPS and FedEx both have 6+ seats in the back for people hauling, either employees like the cargo master to families that get free flights when they win some type of award from the company).
Any hoo, an employee decided to hijack the plane, the only thing is is that UPS have private hangers, of which no one has to go through the main airport, of which UPS allows their pilots to be armed.
It didn't go well for the employee. He was shot and killed IIRC and I think that UPS still allows it's pilots to be armed. I don't know about FedEx though.
