In the 1970s there was a best selling novel entitled Black Sunday by Thomas Harris. In the novel a deranged Vietnam War vet/pilot works with members of Black September to perpetrate a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Specifically the pilot and his partner hijack the blimp being used to telecast the Super Bowl, fly the blimp over the Super Bowl arena (the game was being played in Miami) and then detonating a very powerful bomb underneath the blimp filled with shrapnel. In the novel the two are stopped by a combination of daring FBI and Mossad agents. But what if such an attack had actually occurred with a bomb being detonated almost right on top of the arena. What would be the immediate physical effects? Also follow up questions. What would be the political and international ramifications of such an event? Final follow up. In the 1977 film version President Jimmy Carter is attending the game. If he is killed as a result of the explosion how does this further effect things?
