The Somali attacker of the Daallo Airlines Flight 3159 detonated his combat laptop just a few minutes after take off.  The failed terrorist plot could have been worse. Authorities say the man knew exactly where to sit on the plane in order to cause the most damage. It easily could have taken the entire plane to the ground and killed everyone on board.

Luckily, though, the only fatality was the attacker himself. Identified as Abdullahi Abdisalam Borleh, the elderly Somali man was sucked out of the fuselage at 14,000 ft.

Somali officials did recover the body of the attacker later on in an intensive search. He was equipped with torn, bloody clothing and was without his sandals.

Below is video of the inside of the plane just minutes after the detonation.
