Man overpowered trying to hijack Alitalia flight...




ROME (Reuters) - A man with a knife tried to hijack an Alitalia flight from Paris to Rome Sunday night, demanding it be flown to Libya, but was quickly overpowered and arrested when the plane landed, officials and witnesses said.Witnesses said the man put a small knife to the throat of a female flight attendant and held her for a few minutes."The man grabbed the stewardess from behind her back and pointed the knife. She was in difficulty and tried to turn around," a passenger named Sofia told reporters.He held her for just a few minutes and then the other flight attendants intervened and passengers helped hold the man to the floor," she said.Other attendants on flight AZ329 then overpowered the man, who was "clearly agitated" and the captain radioed police, who arrested the man when the plane landed, the statement said.
...ARTICLE

Whoever thinks they can actually hijack a plane and get away with has got to be crazy...look how easy it was for the attendants and passengers to take the man down...thats why 9/11 is,was and will always be a joke...if you think about it.it only took a few people to take care of this man that had knife but 150 some passengers wouldnt have been able to take down 3 men with box cutters? i doubt it!!! this is a perfect example of why and how 9/11 was an inside job...if the 9/11 attacks happened the way they tell us then this is what woulda really happened and the hijackers would have never even came close to hitting any targets..

Got to watch out for them Muslims, especially when they get on planes.

Good job to the attendants and passengers for keeping an eye out for him.

What a fail attempt...

I agree OP, more credit towards the truth movement... Yeah I have a hard time believeing people would not risk their lives against box cutters, compared to absolute death for every person in contact with the hijacked plane, or where it lands

I feel strongly that all commercial pilots have a problem with the idea that three crews of the 9/11 planes simply handed over the controls to Muslim hijackers with little razor knives. I can't believe that at all.

You don't have your "facts" correct.....and you are totally unaware of the vast DIFFERENCE today.....because of the hindsight from 9/11.


On that day, the intimidation factor was high, and the "common strategy" was to cooperate. It had been the practice in previous air piracy events, and this was deemed the best approach.

UNTIL it was discovered, the true intent of those hijackers.

Another tactic they used was the (false) claim of having a bomb. THAT tactic worked for others in the past. You don't want to call their bluff, on the chance that they ARE bluffing, and be wrong.

The infamous "DB Cooper" claimed to have a bomb....after the fact, it was shown to have been all bluster, on his part. But, they acceded to his demands, based on that possibility.....



You really don't understand the psychology, then....compared to NOW?

The reason the crews and passengers fight back against hijackers now days it they do not have much of a choice. The air force of the US and a lot of other counties have said that they are willing to shot down hijacked planes and not take a chance with having 9/11 repeat. So let all hijackers be warned the crew and passengers will kill you at all cost for they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Trying to hijack a plane now is a joke, forget it.

They DIDN'T!!!


....that three crews of the 9/11 planes simply handed over the controls to Muslim hijackers with little razor knives....




The pilots were attacked....ambushed, from behind, with little time to react, in cramped space....while seated, with seatbelts fastened....against two men standing, armed with knives.

A quick slit to the throat, was all that was needed....sorry to say.

So before 9-11 there was never such a devastating hijacking. How many hijackings that did happen prior to that did people try and overpower the hijacker? Before 9-11 people didn't think that someone was going to crash a plane into buildings. More than anything they just wanted money or prisoners released. But now after 9-11 the mentality has changed and people would rather risk the life of one than the life of hundreds stopping a hijacker. That argument holds no water. Try again.

then or now..intimidation or not...if someone is trying to hijack a plane you gotta think theyre gonna do something very bad..you cant tink theyre gonna land and demand a ransom or something like that...even before 9/11..even if they threatened with a bomb on 9/11 wouldnt you have figured that you were gonna die either way so why not fight back? just like the flight 97 passengers supposedly decided to fight backmthey say they did even tho the hijackers said what they said because they figured they were gonna die either way....so youre telling me that out of all the passengers on he other planes that nobady would stand up and fight back?

Disinformation, since when is a box cutter a knife?

How many times before 9-11 did a hijacker fly a plane into a building killing everyone on board?

Now think this over, and figure out why this might be a pretty important distinction before speaking.

OK?

hmmm back in the day when there was a bomb threat on a plane... try overpowering the guy with the bomb and chance him detonating it, or give in to his demands and have a higher chance of him not detonating it. Yeah that's a tough one. Your thinking is flawed. The mentality is very different from pre 9-11.
