Reports indicate that shoulder-launched missiles are very common among various militant groups. Terrorists use these missiles against civilian or military targets. Dealing with shoulder-launched missiles is costly and complex.

Countermeasures Ė Elbit, for example, developed a missile defense system for planes, to be installed aboard Israeli commercial aircraft. These systems are very expensive, however, and only a few countries would be capable of enforcing their use. The systemís efficiency against missiles from various technological generations, or missiles using different targeting methods, isnít constant and requires ongoing upgrades and adaptations.

I agree with this article. I can actually see terrorist groups buying second-hand or outdated shoulder-launched missiles. Groups with more money to spend, I can see them investing in the top-of-the-line missile models.

I can also see the vulnerability of Civilian Aviation to this type of technology.

However, I think there might have been an air-pirating incident that occurred with the Malaysian 777 Boeing aircraft. It might have blown up in the sky, but I believe, in the beginning, the mission was to highjack and steal the plane and it occupants.

I believe the old sea-pirating days have possibly evolved into air-pirating. If there were survivors, I fear some people were sold into slavery. Jewelry, watches and other possessions became the spoils for the terrorists.

There was evidence of some type of reprogramming in the cockpit before the air craft vanished.

That would be a good way in order to deflect any missiles that were aimed at air crafts for the sole purpose of destroying lives! What technology that would bring!! Thanks David!

Scary and sad that now even if you actively hate war and DON'T want to be involved in an altercation, just trying to get from point A to point B can cost your life. Too many crazies out there now.

Noted. Anyone remember TWA Flt. 800? The investigation into that by the late Pierre Salinger was looking into our own U.S. Navy "accidentally" firing one of those missiles from our own land. The case could've also been made that it was no accident, and/or actually another successful act of terrorism by foreign nationals. I agree it was definitely terrorism--whether by our own country or another. Too bad the investigation was closed before the truth was given to the public.
But, arming commercial civilian aircraft with missiles is completely outlandish! In fact, all someone dastardly needs is a laser light to blind the pilots....which has actually been done. Here in Tucson, someone was recently arrested for attempting to do just that....and it's not the only incident. Our state legislature wanted to write a law severely punishing anyone who does that...but, I haven't heard how far they've gotten on it, since there are already laws in place. This law would just have harsher penalties. But, do check all this info out for yourselves......
Truth is that newer commercial aircraft can be hacked from the ground---they don't need missiles anymore.

These days if you don't have high anxiety, you just don't know what's going on.
