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.
