Teen stowaway gets through airport security, stows away in wheel well, ends tragically.

Authorities believe a 16 year old boy found dead last month on a Milton, MA street fell out of the wheel well of an aircraft.

How to crash an airplane by cheating at Tetris

This simple hack actually only crashes the in-flight entertainment system (perhaps this one?), but that's already enough to cause concern with the kind of people who comment anonymously on a blog for "security executives."

I'm certain that this vulnerability (like this vulnerability) will be taken seriously.
