B4B Fightclub

B4B Fightclub: Boeing 757 -v- F-18 Hornet

If Jack Bauer is seated on your flight, you better assume the crash position. Jack Bauer is now in control of a 757 full of drunken diplomats and an Air Marshal with a bloody nose. True to 24, the pilot is a mole. President Weasel has launched an F-18 to shoot down the aircraft. Pitting one of the world's best fighter aircraft against a commercial passenger plane.

If you're not packing nukes against Jack Bauer you have NO shot.

Then again, they were packing nukes in season 2 and still couldn't kill him. Advantage=Airliner.

BTW, still going with 8 dead when the plane depressurizes and 2 rows of 3 passengers each and 2 stewardesses get sucked out.

I still can't believe 0 people died last week--wow!!

I'm going with 10 bodies this week to make up for no one dieing last week.

You can kill Jack Bauer - you just can't talk first. A F-18 doesn't have a chance as the pilot will be yapping trying to get out of shooting down a civilian plane.

Like Little Miss Chatterbox I was surprised when more good guys died on Lost and Alias than bad guys on 24. Hopefully that ratio will reverse itself this week. I'm going with 4.

Jack Bauer saves the day while Kim Bauer is introduced to The Mile High Club by her shrink.

Zero kills, again.

I think Jack Bauer can definitely handle the F-18, for a couple of reasons.

First, my girlfriend had absolutely no trouble with an F-14 (seriously, walked right into the thing and barely got a bruise).

Second, we've already shown that Jack can enact evasive maneuvers without even being in the cockpit--should be an indicator of how quickly he'll dispatch the F-18.

Jack Bauer has a built in anti-missile defensive screen that he can summon at will. The 757 will have a hard landing, and 5 people will die when a fire starts in the cabin.

The F18 pilot will also die when the missile he fires reaquires his own plane as a target.

And Jack Bauer is also taking attention off the fact that the real hero of CTU is none other than Napoleon Dynamite.
