Notice how they carefully stay away from the liners the wake turbulence. That could spoil your whole day.

Hey, Has bruce retired yet? I can see a movie coming on.
But you wouldn't want them in the wrong hands would you? Well think again on that.

That was my first thought. How long before someone dons an explosive vest and flies up next to a loaded airliner over a major metropolitan area?

Wouldn't it just be easier to use the helicopter or plane that they have to jump out of?

Neat video, but I was shocked by one thing in particular. At about 1:40 in the shot goes to the captain on the A380. Guy looks like he hasn't shaved in 3 days.
Not only is this very unprofessional to appear that way in uniform, and in the cockpit, it would be a violation of FAA regs here as it would interfere with the use of the O2 mask.

Maybe it was filmed at the end of one of those hideous fourteen hour Sydney-Dubai flights. God knows I dont look a whole lot better after one of those, and it's not like I'm the hairiest dude on the planet, by a very long shot!

What is the Big Plane doing? 300 mph? My boots always fall off at 300 mph. Also, where are they hiding their fuel? I was never able to suck in enough air at that speed to keep from fainting.
What am I missing?
Regards the opening comment, I look good in wingtips.
