    Default Report: Flight to Orlando used as terrorist practice run

    Inevitably, some day soon, a plane is going to land with some dead Muslims aboard. Beaten to death by their fellow passengers.

    Terrorists are in the midst of practice runs in preparations for an attack on U.S. airlines.

    That is the claim made in a report from Tampa's CBS affiliate, WTSP TV.

    WTSP has obtained what it claims is a memo from the union that represents pilots for many major airlines that warns that terrorist dry runs are already underway and that the most notable example is a flight inbound to Orlando in last month.

    The pilots say the most recent dry-run occurred on Flight 1880 on September 2. The flight left Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. and headed to Orlando International.

    Crew members say that shortly after takeoff, a group of four "Middle Eastern" men caused a commotion.

    The witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach, toward the flight deck door. He made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom "for a considerable length of time."

    While he was in there, the other three men proceeded to move about the cabin, changing seats, opening overhead bins, and "generally making a scene." They appeared to be trying to occupy and distract the flight attendants.

    The 10 News Investigators contacted both US Airways and the Transportation Security Administration both confirmed the incident.

    WTSP also spoke with a federal air marshall who has information about the incident and others like it. You can read the rest of that story here, http://www.wtsp.com/news/topstories/...runs-on-planes

    Didn't your name change result in a statement such as this?

    Not to derail but what was your original name again?

Believe me, I do a lot of things to my dick and it's not a big deal for me to punch it, I just dont want it posted or traceable to me in any way. We are at an impasse' on this one, I thought they would break down after a year, but noooooo.

    This is why there can't be another 9/11 type situation. People know and would immediately diffuse the situation. Look at the last two people that tried something: the underwear and shoe bomber. Both guys were wrestled to the ground immediately after trying something.

    What made 9/11 so devious is that the passengers never thought they were going to be used as a missle so everyone played by the rules figuring they were headed back to the airport. The minute flight 93 found out, they took out those assholes.

    For that matter, even the flight crews were trained to comply with the terrorist demands pre 9-11. The thinking was that if you complied with their demands, statistically you would get out alive.

    Obviously, the training for the flight crews has changed. Some passengers on a Southwest airplane a number of years ago killed a guy who went crazy.

    Just because they can't take down a jet in the same manner doesn't mean they won't plan some type of attack on a plane.

    Hope those sick fuckers rot in hell.

    agreed. Anyone dumb enough to attempt to take over a plane would be attacked and possibly killed by the other people on the plane. I remember going to Vegas for the Superbowl after 9/11 and anyone who looked middle eastern was basically stared down for the whole 4 hour flight and would have been jumped if they stood up too quickly. Felt bad for the poor guys.

    Why did you feel bad for them? Maybe they were actually another group of these fuckers. But they had to drop back and punt because they knew IF they even looked at someone wrong they would get the dog shit kicked out of them.

    Your turn Mike. Out.

    The training for flight crews has definitely changed...which is why these idiots will change their training. Now they will probably kill the passengers and crew before continuing on their way. The flights on 9-11 were a long way from full...I'm sure they'd follow the same strategy. Harder to take over a plane with 300 people on it.

    I think some of you are overreacting. Have none of you ever played Chinese Firedrill on an airplane before?!
