So this is a whole new, and not all that surprising, kettle of fish.

Anyone with specifics?

It it was a recent design I would believe it but a 757 I'm really not buying it until we see some proof.

If this means that I won't have to suffer the unbearable political correctness in the movie selection in the inflight entertainment anymore, then I'm all for it :ok:

If I'm going to believe that this "hacking" has any bearing on control or safety of the aircraft, then I'd least like to know what was hacked. The article in the second link, which is obviously Daily Fail's source, is totally silent on this.
