What the hell's wrong with people? :(
I know why most people, do this! they don't know about these forums ;)
I'd kill myself if I didn't know about them either, not :P

RE: NEWS:Man tries to storm aircraft cockpit

Sounds to me similar to the Kenyan who burst into the cockpit of a BA 744 en route London Gatwick - Nairobi, on the 29th December 2000.

(report: http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/newsid_1092000/1092164.stm)

I can't remember there being a much follow up reporting on that case, so not sure what happened subsequently to the man in question.
