Pilot and Travelers Subdue Hijacker

Now, here’s a great way to handle hijackers. The pilot here is to be commended. Read the original article.

Basically, it went like this: A fast-thinking pilot with his passengers in cahoots fooled a hijacker by braking hard upon landing, then accelerating to knock the man down. When he fell, flight attendants threw boiling water in his face, and about 10 people pounced on him, Spanish officials said Friday. Air Mauritania identified the heroic pilot as Ahmedou Mohamed Lemine, a 20-year-veteran of the company.

I think that’s fantastic. Every single time people stop sitting on their lazy collective asses and fight back, it makes it just a little harder for the terrorist. Put a little terror in their lives. What a great story. I am pleased.
