Can You Actually Blow Up a Plane with Liquids?

Uncategorized August 28 2006 0 Comments

I’ve been rather skeptical of the notion that the alleged terrorists in the London bomb plot could’ve blown up a plane using liquids smuggled on board.  I’m not the only one.  This article looks at why you should be skeptical, too.  In short:  it would be really, really difficult to make a bomb on board.

And this ties in a bit with the awful crash yesterday in Kentucky: while the entire world is focused on terrorists bringing down a plane, the reality is that human error is far more likely to cause an accident than a terrorist.
