Distressing news about this Germanwings business.
At least I have comfort knowing that for my upcoming vacation, the captain cannot deliberately sink the ship. Well, he could, but it would at least take a while before it sank.
Come to think of it, that would be a pretty good terrorist tactic, wouldn't it? Torpedo a cruise ship? Ram it like the U.S.S. Cole, but instead of a navy ship, a civilian one? Low on defences, casualties and death sure to result, mass hysteria...
But I'm sure they've thought about that already.
