The Angry Skies

BOSTON— A JetBlue pilot who threatened to "harm himself in spectacular fashion" surrendered a gun to authorities in Massachusetts after they confronted him just before he boarded a flight at Logan International Airport, law enforcement authorities said Friday.

The pilot was not charged with illegal possession of a firearm, and the gun was taken by federal authorities, suggesting he might be a member of the Federal Flight Deck Officer program.

The post-9/11 program screens, trains, arms and deputizes pilots as a last line of aircraft security. There are reportedly 10,000 pilots carrying handguns under the program.

Hey.. I have a fucking brilliant idea. How about they make cockpit doors so that they can't be opened from the passenger side?

How about fucking that? eh?

Would have prevented planes flying into the WTC and would eliminate the need for fucking aircraft pilots from believing they are Rambo and carrying guns onto a plane.

I swear to god the level of stupidity in this world is astounding.

Seriously... very few people I encounter in day to day life aren't complete morons.
