So is each passenger issued an axe on this airline, or is it done by lottery?

It's really tragic that a man can carry one axe and two knives aboard an airplane without any problems......

He attacked the pilots when they were approaching the airport, and injured both of them pretty bad with the axe.
Two passengers managed to force him down, and the pilots got control over the plane again when it was just 30 meters above the ground.

But small airports doesn't have any kind of security check here in Norway (we got about 26 of small ones).

I guess (hope) that's going to change real soon now.
