A Bigger Target?

The more centralized the capability, the easier it is for terrorists to target it. You don't see them attacking individual cars the way they have gone after ships & planes for example. Theirs is a media war, and single car disasters just don't make the front page.

So I wonder if the new giant Airbus (how will they load/unload that thing?) will attract more attacks? Cuz if a terrorist group is looking to make a splash, this one is twice as big as anything else out there.

That said, if I'm flying and it turns out to be on one, I won't really worry about it.
