FedEx wants anti-missile lasers installed on some planes

FedEx wants anti-missile lasers installed on some planes

quote:

The Federal Aviation Administration is considering special conditions that would allow FedEx to install an infrared anti-missile laser on certain cargo planes, in response to a years-old request from the international shipping giant.

In October 2019, FedEx applied for a supplemental certificate to install a missile defense system that directs infrared laser energy toward heat-seeking missiles on the Airbus A321-200, a twin-engine model that has a maximum takeoff weight of 89,000 pounds, according to the FAA's filing on Friday.



Maybe they should put these defense lasers on the freight trains in L.A. instead:

Not sure which planes/routes this would apply to but they regularly flew in and out of Bagram when I was in Afghanistan. I would want them as well

Maybe they should concentrate on delivering packages on time instead of lasers. I have an overnight package that was to be delivered Thursday, and appears it won't be delivered until Monday. Oh and yeah, get off my lawn....

Maybe if all their planes weren’t getting shot down they could get you your package.
