Mawloc Terror from the deep Vs Flyers

Does this hit zooming flyers I'm hearing yes and no. That since it is not a shooting attack or a "template weapon" just a marker that TFTD hits zooming flyers What does everyone else think? Im for it

Page 82, BRB first paragraph under "Hard to Hit":

Template, Blast and Large Blast weapons cannot hit Flyers in Zoom mode.


The Mawloc Terror From the Deep uses a Large Blast to resolve its effects, so it can't hit flyers.

From a practical standpoint, it also would make absolutely no sense. How could something creating a giant hole in the ground hit an aircraft flying, at minimum, tens of meters in the air?

Fluff wise it could be rocks/dirt flung up from when it comes tearing out of the ground. RAW states pretty clearly that template/blast weapons cannot hit flyers, so my take is the Kinne is correct.
Everyone is insane, its only a matter who's more obvious about it.
