Long before September 11, 2001, there had been airplanes hijacked all over the world. However, after the events that occurred on that fateful day, the world, especially the United States, have become much more cautious about security screenings. Those planes that were taken over on United States soil were a wakeup call that we are living in dangerous times where almost anything can happen. In the aftermath, security measures have been tightened not only for air travel but in any place where large groups of people gather (i.e. music concerts, amusement parks, etc.). While we have seen movies in the past that depict what could happen should terrorists overtake an airplane, Amazon’s 7500 offers a realistic view of the atrocities that could occur.

Everything seems fine and the airplane takes off smoothly. However, after a few minutes in the air, terrorists barge into the cockpit and wound Both Lutzmann and Ellis. Luckily, they manage to get all but one of the terrorists out of the cockpit and subdue the remaining one. Once again gaining control of the plane. — More
