FedEx wants to install anti-missile system on its planes

Talk about occupational safety. 😂

“FedEx does not currently operate any Airbus 321 planes.”
So why does the company want it? Why not request permission for aircraft types they already operate, like 767 and 777? 🤔

I guess cargo planes go into higher risk destinations more than passenger ones, so it makes some sense.

The A321 aspect could be because Airbus already have this option 'in the system' for that aircraft, so it's an easier solution to buy those than trying to retrofit it. Also the places where these missiles are likely to be found are probably not suitable for or don't warrant a bigger plane like the 76 or 77.

I wonder if they could make it dual purpose so when some twat on the ground lasers an aircraft it incinerates them :unsure:
Maybe it could kill nearby drones too :)
