View Full Version : Aircraft boarding strategies

Hey Guys,

The Dark Knight rocks. I was just wondering, how it would it be possible to board an aircraft without it landing? Any thoughts other than what the film proposes?

Have fun!

Have you seen the movie Executive Decision (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116253/)? To cut a long story short, there's an attempt to insert people from a F-117A in to a 747, at cruise altitude, that is not entirely successful. (The plot requires that the scientist type makes it, but the professional soldier finds himself taking a long fall.)

It wasn't a problem on "Air Force One"

Then again, the president used to be a well know archaeological expert.....who made lots of impossible things seem possible :}
