The threat of plane hijackings are worse than ever. The 21st century marked the true rise of hijacking planes, and at this point shows no sign of stopping. The drastically increasing numbers of hijackings only go to show that this problem is not going away any time soon. This should be kept in mind by people intending to fly this holiday.
I think that hijacked planes are still a concern today because you still see on the news where there's been a new attempt at a plane hijacking. I think that eventually there will be another successful hijacking, just because there are so many attempts made. There should be tighter security at airports.
Hijackings are still a constant problem in the 21st Century, because they still happen on occasion. There have been several incidents of hijackings in the last decade, and even tragic outcomes where pilots with mental health issues have hijacked their own planes with disastrous consequences. It is still a problems because humans are still a part of airplane flight.
Whilst the Libyan plane hijacking is a cause for concern, it does not mean the there is a serious threat to airlines of hijackers. Nowadays, there is much greater security against hijackers. For many years, a plane hijack was unheard of.It is safe to say that plane hijacks are a very rare occurrence.
