    Welcome to the new "normal." Well spoken.

    My questions is... Who is flying the plane while the pilot is taking out the terrorist?

    Maybe the flight attendants should be armed as well...
    Ahhh, what an awful dream. Ones and zeros everywhere... and I thought I saw a two.

    Most commercial airliners once they hit altitude and cruising speed go are set on auto-pilot.Then let's not forget the co-pilot

    Now this is just me speaking...

    I am a commercial pilot and I spent 20 years in the military as well, 15 of those years was as a UH-60 pilot. I also flew armed. As a pilot I would be more concerned about getting the aircraft on the ground than trying to fight some one off. I would rather have my crew (flight attendant, air marshall) fight off the attacker while I am putting the aircraft on the ground. As we used to say in the Army when in an emergency "Fly the Aircraft."

    Thats just me and I am just a helicopter pilot... we are different than those civilian commercial airline pilots so we think differently.

    That's what scares the hell out of most of us. If the pilot goes down, who flies the plane?
    The attendants need access to firearms too!
    Certainly, more Air Marshals!

    Well I am a commercial pilot as well, after being a Navy Pilot, so from that perspective, I believe that you do think differently. From experience, we now know that it's difficult to put the aircraft on the ground (in one piece) after your throat has been cut. Priority number one is to neutralize the threat. Then you have the option to concentrate fully on flying the aircraft. Not to sound too abrasive, but one of my Navy colleagues was on the first aircraft into the World Trade Center. Getting the aircraft on the ground and then fighting off the attacker didn't work too well for him.

    With all due respect… that is why I believe that the rest of the flight crew should be armed as well. Why just the pilot? My humble opinion is if the attacker has made it to the flight deck and is banging on the door, he has made it too far. He should have been stopped long before then.
