The present invention relates to preventing one or a group of suicide hijackers from taking over control of an airplane and crashing it onto public facility such as a building, city, dam, atomic reactor, or ship for the purpose of causing mass destruction and killing of innocent civilians. This invention comprises multiple defense stations inside the passengers cabin. Each station has a motorized defense tool, video camera viewer with remote controller is in front of the pilot and in airline, FBI, and CIA headquarters. Each station has one of the following; a defense tool, a gun with silencer, stunt gun, tranquilizer, MACE or pepper sprayer, arrow thrower with high voltage electric charge, wood hammer, head banger, stomach puncher, foot tripper and trap, head
holder, waist grabber, or a leg trapper or breaker as one of the stunt none-lethal and no permanent damage to immobilize the intruders. The locations of defense stations includes cabin ceiling above the center isle, cabin floor below walk isle, inside cabin side walls, rear of cabin, cockpit door, and inside cockpit. Line of fire is above isle stretch and above the heads of sitting passengers. Video cameras are mounted on these defense tools that are motorized for direction and for automatic firing. Remote viewing of gun sight field, remote aiming, and firing by pilot or by central or regional location of Police, InterPol, FBI, CIA, FAA, army, or headquarters allows the pilot or commanding post to act in defense, immobilize, physically knockdown, or tranquilize the one or multiple hijackers. The video and sound connection as well as pointing and firing are in realtime communication via internet, radio, cellular, or satellite means. An automatic recognition of intruder sitting on pilot's seat is by few parameters such weight, skin color, color of eyes, and voice according to past flyers and airline listed pilots employees. A computer and a GPS system on board the airplane reads the GPS of plane in flight and reads an on file list of on ground GPSs of sensitive potential terror targets nationally and international locations such as atomic reactors, building, and dams that are filed into computer and its backup computer. If the plane flight is below 2000 feet and is approaching a GPS potential target the computer automatically overrides the intruder pilot to turn left by temporary mechanical locking tail left flap or tail flap up. Another security item is kite-like controlled opening parachute for the plane for slow vertical speed and slow horizontal speed to lower the chances of injuries and damage.

SECURITY & ANTI SUICIDE-HIJACKING
SYSTEM FOR AIRPLANES
 The present invention relates to security of airplane and property. After Sep. 11, 2001 attack the USA is considering air marshals on every flight, luggage imaging, extensive checking on passengers history & profiling, checking terrorists and wanted listings, and other complicated unassuring measures that have many draw backs and limitations. World wide and American people do not feel safe now. Big buildings, dams, atomic reactors, ships, underground transportation, freedom, landmarks, dense civilian locations, and democracy remain in danger.
 The present invention relates to security of airplanes against suicide hijackers intending to crash into facilities and to cause mass destruction and killings of innocent people. The Sep. 11, 2001 attack on World Trade Center in New York and on the Pentagon in Washington D.C. that killed thousands of innocent people shows that current security on air travel is inadequate. Government plan for air marshals, checking passengers against suspected terrorists lists, improved baggage imaging and more training for employees do not bring back feeling safe.
DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION  The present invention relates to security of airplanes against hijacking followed by suicide crashing into cities, buildings, dams, atomic reactors, and facilities. This invention comprises multiple defense stations inside the passenger's cabin and in cockpit. Each station has a motorized defense weapon, video camera viewer, and a remote controller in front of the pilot. Each station has one or more of the following items; a stun gun, tranquilizer, a gun with silencer and safety rubber bullets or double hollow point aluminum stun bullets, arrow with high voltage electric charge, wood or rubber hammer, head banger, stomach puncher, foot tripper and trap, or a leg hurler or breaker. Locations of defense stations include cabin ceiling above the isle, below isle floor, inside side walls of passenger cabin, rear of cabin, cockpit door, and inside cockpit in front seated pilot on dashboard, on pilots seat, and in cockpit ceiling. Line of fire is above isle stretch and above the heads of sitting passengers. Video cameras are mounted on these defense articles that are motorized for direction and for automatic firing. Remote viewing of video designators of sight field, remote aiming, and defense action by pilot or by central or regional location of Police, InterPol, FBI, CIA, FAA, army, or world wide headquarters allows the pilot or commanding post to immobilize or physically knockdown or tranquilize and capture the one or multiple hijackers. The video and sound connection as well as aiming and firing are in realtime video-audio-mechanical communication via internat, radio, cellular, or satellite means. A computer and backup with on-plane global positioning system (GPS) location reader and height and speed and overriding turn by evasive temporary mechanical locking the tail flaps side turn for evasive action of listed GPS landmarks as the White House, Eiffel Tower, atomic reactor, and dams allowing affiliated headquarters to temporarily remote-control flight namely to prevent intruder or crazy pilot from crashing the plane on any of listed sensitive targets listed by computer programs.
