Second Chopper Crash in NYC

Could this have been sabotage ?



Twice,in a three day period,chartered helicopters have gone out of control and crashed into NYC's East River. There is some indication-in both cases-the choppers went into uncontrollable spins prior to crashing.


What could cause something like that ?


There are obvious answers: coincidence,parts failure,bad fuel ,pilot error,etc.,...and one not-so-obvious possibility: sabotage.


Question: How does one sabotage a helicopter without getting aboard it ?


Answer: With a laser or EMP device - capable of "frying" the on-board electronics.


How far-fetched is the idea ? I found one Net contributor who takes it very seriously:

Looking further, I found someone who allegedly has plans and kits for such devices !!


(Just scroll past the entries for "reversing the meter",and the "100mpg Carburetor".)

Question : Sounds complicated. Why not just hijack a chopper ?


Answer : Suppose you had something bigger in mind- such as an airliner-and were just practicing ?



What do you think ? Tinfoil Hat Time - or something to worry about ??
