Something else just crossed my mind on this. Since the Security Services just love finding new reasons to be scared of their very own
shadows....How's this for a happy thought on the next one of these stupid notes?
What if, for the sake of argument, I'm a mad bomber type with an attitude and dislike of airliners. So..I decide I'd like one better landing in
10,000 pieces than at an airport?
Well.... Perhaps I would build my little gift of doom with an altimeter switch that armed as it crossed above ..say, 15,000 feel AGL and then did
nothing more. Just sat there while some Homer Simpson in the cabin found the note. Then, because I'd be a real sick bastard to have done this much to
start with.....I add a little special sauce of evil to my plans. I set up the trigger so the armed device at high altitude gets an attitude when it
comes back down. (rubs paws together in a master villain laugh)
Awww... Now landing to find the bomb will have located the bomb as intended ....at 15,000 feet on the descent. Yup... There it is! I
foun........(silence ever more).
...If I was a REAL sick person, I'd even avail myself of modern technology and build GPS into the whole rotten cupcake of death and insure it didn't
blow up if no one found the note and it's descent came over Egypt, as scheduled. After all, being a Jihadi in this example, I wouldn't want Cairo
scattered with broken airplane. Just the logical diversion point for a transatlantic flight. Muhahahahaha.
This is why we;d actually want to spend billions to make sure so much as a firecracker couldn't get ON the plane in the first............err...Oh
wait, we already do that too you say? Well. Nuts.
