Just for the record here, the only times I can recall when a plane was used
to commit suicide, not in a kamikaze way, is a few years back, when a pilot
of a Marokkian airliner took his crew and 126 passengers with him in order
to swindle his assurance- company in order to get enough money for his
little daughter 's operation.
If you want the details for the second example, I have to check....
