Use of a device, substance or weapon at an aircraft facility in an act of violence against persons or destruction of facilities, resulting in death can be punished by death. “Terrorist attacks and other violence against railroad carriers and against mass transportation systems on land, on water, or through the air,” resulting in death, can be punished by death. Terrorist murder of a U.S. national is punishable by death in accordance with 18 U.S.C. 1111. Use of a weapon of mass destruction, resulting in death, can be punished by death.
