    How many of us feel safe to travel by plane after Sep 11?

    Recently on a Domestic Qantas flight from Melbourne to Hobart. A man jumped from his seat, brandished two sharpened sticks, stabbing two fight attendents and atempted to gain access to the cockpit screaming that he was going to crash the plane just like Sep 11.

    Even though stabbed, the Flight attendants one male and one female bravely attempted to disable the man. With help from passengers they were able to disable him and he was detained and tied up with cable ties where the flight then returned to the Melbourne airport.

    In Australian newspapers pictures of the incident have been all to graphically published. I looked at one in particular where the female flight attendant can barely open her left eye. I wondered, what type of Coward does something like this?

    Sorry Gina, you must have clicked on it just as I posted it. I tested it and found the error straight away. ;)

    Historical fact, you can't crash a QANTAS plane :D (so far... ;) )

    I would have no problem flying again, however my bankbook does ;)
