- 2x RAF planes to escort a rowdy passenger on commercial flight…sonic boom
she tried to rush the cockpit and threatened to kill people, apparently.
Sort of person you’d want off the plane sharpish, even if you were a bit late to where you wanted to go.

Your common all garden improvised terrorist thermonuclear device
Sorry, do what?
I’ve never heard of an improvised terrorist before.
What is it and why would they need the whole of a garden? Are they really common?
A small, as in smallest possible, nuke, there was a survivor of Hiroshima somewhat incredibly just 300m from the centre of the blast, protected by the massive concrete bank building, but mostly anything within a couple of km is dead, at 20 miles you’d almost certainly survive but would want to leave the area for a while.
The supersize Russian efforts, you’d be instant charcoal.
Fortunately, they’ve been dismantled, I believe, mainly because it’s easy to fly a small one into “the right place” now that guidance systems are what they are. And small ones are cheaper.
Also, nobody improvises a nuclear weapon. It’s not like you just knock one up from stuff lying about the place like MacGyver.Posted 7 months agoswdanMember
Looks like the passenger is getting an £85k bill…Posted 6 months agoMister PMember
I like how the BBC don’t name her, instead opting for “a woman” whereas Metro plaster her face all over the page. At least if I see her pop up on Tinder I know which way to swipe.
