I have wondered recently if the powers that be have looked during the last 5 years or so at transfering personnel between aircraft in flight, ala the movie executive decision. it would be much more benificial PR wise if a hyjacked aircraft could be boarded by an SF team & retaken rather than shot down, time permiting. however i think that if such a capability were to be developed, it would be kept secret. as to the technical feasability, I think a telescopic docking color could be designed. it would just then come down to the hatches on the underside of aircraft, if they have them. discuss.
