Oh god, not this again. There is no way for them to take over a plane on the ground, and fly it. The zero visibility system is JUST coming
online in the new planes like the 787. If they had it since the mid 70s don't you think that flight delays due to fog would have gone away already?
As far as the taking over and flying from the ground, no way would a system like that be used. All it would take is one person going postal,
and there's a 747 flying into something killing 4-500 people at least. Controllers have THE most stressful job in the world, and are more likely
than almost anyone else to snap.
