Passenger Who Threatened To Blow Up PIA
On May 24th, two British nationals of Pakistani descent were held on suspicion of endangering an aircraft. This latest terror scare follows the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby by Muslim fanatics.
The Pakistan International Airlines flight left Lahore at 9.35am local time and was due in at Manchester at 2pm before being diverted. TWO RAF jets were scrambled to intercept a Pakistani airliner after two passengers allegedly declared: "We're going to blow this plane up." Stunned crew launched a terror alert yesterday afternoon after the men reportedly started a scuffle by trying to force their way into the cockpit of the Manchester-bound airline.
The Typhoon war jets flew out from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire and escorted the Boeing 777 and its 297 passengers to Stansted in Essex.
