    Knowing that modern flight-computers on Boeings can bypass pilot controls, this freaks me out. Imagine wtc done by script-kiddies.

    Imagine someone sitting in the plane with a joystick and a laptop controlling the plane! Priceless, unless you are on board and it just happens to be a terrorist...

    Imagine WTC was done by people that couldn’t even fly a Cessna eh, perhaps no need to let the imagination run all to wild by including any so called script-kiddies with joysticks now.

    no thanks. im a system analyst myself, and know that if theres a way, people will find it.

    boeing need to make the wireless system completely somehow, 100.00% separated from the flight/navigation system. period. "places that they are (touching)" is not acceptable.

    until then, i will always view this as a flaw.

    Until they resolved that by full physical separation, I will not take a dreamliner.

    And everyone should refuse to board this kind of plane.

    No one is questioning the flaw in the design, I’m sure.

    given how intractable boeing is, something will have to happen before anything will be done about it.
