What if you were empty (no passengers)?
Same thing applies, I was acting responsibly and rationally I would not risk injury to myself or persons on the ground.
You seem to think an aircraft can be precisely maneuvered at 150 knots over it's Vmo for more than a few minutes as were the aircraft observed
to impact the WTC.
Didn't have to. Terrorist didn't care if he hit the building dead center or even just clipped a wing as long the result was a very public display
of death and destruction/
Now you don't want to try it, even if empty with no building in front of you? Why?
Uh, why do you think? I don't want to die! And, just as importantly, I don't want to kill anyone else, on the ground or in the air.
Would you be willing to do it straight and level? You don't even have to maneuver it nor hold it at that speed. You can decelerate as soon as
you peg 150 over Vmo.
You still wouldn't be willing to do it?
Ah, yeah, I know - wise choice - because there is a great deal of risk involved. But here is the difference -
I AM NOT A SUICIDAL MANIAC BENT ON THE PUBLIC DEATH AND DESTRUCTION OF OTHERS.
Pointing a gun is a very reasonable thing to do, however pointing a gun at an armed police officer is often suicidal, yet people do it every day.
Some do it just to commit suicide without needing to pull the trigger themselves.
So tell me, when are you going to post those failure analysis calcs that prove the plane disintegrates as soon as it passes a certain speed at a
certain altitude. Any minute now right? Or are we just going to hear a few more opinions?
So, you would fly a Gulfstream full of explosives at 900 knots on the way to your target? How does that achieve your objective?
Would you try to fly it at Mach 2?
Once the target was in sight, of course I would punch it. Mach 8 if it will do it. Imagine travelling hundreds of miles with a plane full of
explosives and you have the target right in front of you and you get shot out of the sky because you were trying to take it easy and not tax the
functional limits of the plane? I think you are having some problems wrapping your head around this suicide thing. If you are going to kill yourself
you don't follow the dosage instructions on the pill bottle.
