I don't see how fifty or a hundred or even two hundred
bullet holes through the fuselage of a large airliner
would do anything more than depressurize the plane.

If the gunfire started a fire, or killed everyone who
could fly the plane, maybe...
Anyone else see a plausible way to make this idea fly?
