62. What about about Hypergolic combinations?

Sepcifically, aneline hypergolic liquids? Common fuel forms include aniline and nitric acid combinations, and hydrogen peroxide and aniline, both of which I believe are explosives. I think they'd still be pretty unstable when mixed, but perfectly stable if not....they would also be a lot easier to make in a basement in Essex.

Agreed; it ain't nitroglycerin they're packing...way too unstable... I'd think it'd have to be a hypergolic combination...two containers of sub-critical 'wallops' as you so deftly put it, that when left on their own are harmless. You combine them and set off a detonator, and 'kaboom'. I think it would work just fine to blow a hole in the bulkhead of a 767? I'm no Chemist, tho...
