Don’t Mess with El Al

Israeli flag carrier El Al will begin installing an anti-missle system on one of its aircraft in December.  Two Israeli companies developed the system, which will send off a decoy flare if it senses a missle coming its way.  The product is similar to anti-missle systems used by the military, but passengers will not be able to see the flares being deployed—a product specification necessary as you can only imagine the panic that would ensue when an anti-missle system is fired.  If the first installation is successful, El Al hopes to include it on six additional aircraft.
