The problem with this "hack" is that there is no link between the flight management computer and ACARS. There is no way to externally access the
systems that fly the plane. Even if there were, which there isn't, all the pilots would have to do is pull the circuit breaker and the computers are
disconnected, and they're back in control.
If they changed the navigation system, to take them off course, then ATC would notice and notify them that they were off course, and give them a
correction. Every system that they could take offline has a redundancy in it, or could be removed from the flight control system without creating a
And older aircraft aren't as dependent on computers, such as the MD-83 that was in today's crash, or the ATR-72 in yesterday's crash.
The simple fact is that planes crash, and accidents come in groups. I don't know why they do, but they do, and you can clearly see if you look back
through the history of aviation accidents that they do.
