HIJACKERS planning a repeat of the September 11 attacks are more likely to be thwarted by secure cockpit doors and passengers and crew fighting back than sky marshals, a study says.
Armed marshals failed the cost-benefit analysis because there was only a 10 per cent chance one would be aboard any individual flight.
Furthermore, passengers and crew might be reluctant to confront a hijacker if they believed a sky marshal was on board.

Start shooting in a pressurised cabin at 30 odd thousand feet and kill everyone?
