This horrific aviation incident happened many years ago, but it was so shocking and terrifying to think that an actual pilot, but in this case, a fired pilot, would choose to become an........in-flight mass murderer"
Pilot David Burke's end began with him, apparently, taking money that didn't belong to him.
He filed an appeal, and, of course, lost the appeal. The REALITY IS.....the vast majority of employers in the world have a zero-tolerance policy towards theft. As well they should be. In this case, we're talking about $69 dollars. It's not a million dollars, but stealing $69 from your employer......IS REAL SERIOUS BUSINESS. 4REAL.
After his appeal was rejected....Mr. Burke hatched a plot to murder his ex-boss on a daily flight to his boss's home. Burke got out of his seat, passed his ex-boss a note, and came out of the lavatory....blasting at his former boss. Then he took a flight attendant hostage and marched her into the cockpit.....and murdered the pilots....and then murdered....himself.....as well as all of the passengers....as the plane fell to the ground at 700 mph.......700........miles.... ...per hour.
