More flights diverted/passengers apprehended

...from The Boston Globe...

A 21 year-old college student was arrested on Friday for carrying explosives on a Continental Airlines flight that arrived in Houston from Buenos Aires. Inside the person's luggage was found "a Coca Cola bottle with mud, and inside it was a tube with ammonium nitrate, a little bit of dynamite and a detonator." The student maintains that he bought the dynamite as a souvenir from a mine in Bolivia, and authorities have determined that he had no terrorist intentions. He may spend up to 10 years in jail if convicted.

What an idiot!

Also yesterday, the two following scares...

-American Airlines Flight 55 (Manchester, England to Chicago)...diverted to Bangor, ME due to "unspecified security concerns"

-US Airways Flight 146 (Phoenix to Charlotte)...diverted to Oklahoma City due to a passenger confrontation with a flight attendant

It's getting ridiculous...

Haha. You and I were posting at the same time. There are so many of these delay/divert/cancel stories it's hard to keep track.
