    I think a letter to i-a-b`s owners is in order. Fancy really needs to be replaced. Or at least give up the authorising of content to someone better suited.

    Basically, he bought a flight computer from Ebay apparently, and used it to figure out how to hack it`s wireless systems. He was able to figure out how to hack into it`s auto pilot and remotely tell the autopilot where to fly the plane.

    Here is a rough translation of the video`s text, which makes more sense with the above explanation:

    left to bottom right.
    and back left and up.

    If you do not want to manually fly
    because that gets boring, then you can just go to a phone and send a location.

    And you see that it flies there.

    I honestly don`t understand why so many people are against this post. This is one of the most interesting posts in the last few months.

    So the dude did hack a plane with his smartphone to completely control the autopilot. Some of the app`s functions were:
    -Please go here: A way of interacting with the plane where the user can dynamically tap locations on the map and change the plane`s course.
    -Define area: Set detailed filters related to the airplane, for example activate something when a plane is in the area of X kilometers or when it starts flying on a predefined altitude.
    -Visit ground: Crash the airplane.
    -Kiss off: Remove itself from the system.
    -Be punckish: A theatric way of alerting the pilots that something is seriously wrong - lights start flashing and alarms start buzzin

    Luckily, he seems like a cool guy. If he wasn`t then 911 would repeat it self quite a few times before anyone found out what was really happening.
