Bomb threat diverts Dulles-bound plane

By Washington Post editors


A plane headed to Dulles International Airport from Houston on Wednesday morning was diverted to an airport in North Carolina after a bomb threat was found written on a bathroom mirror, the News & Record reports.

The Continental Airlines plane carrying about 45 people landed at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro about 10:45 a.m. The plane is on a small runway southwest of the terminal and roads in the area have been blocked off.

Passengers were taken off the plane on a bus and held away from the terminal. Police and FBI are investigating.

Anyone really want these id10t's in charge of your healthcare. What does diverting a plane that may have a bomb on it do???? As if those in NC are somehow less important than those in VA. This is simply the dumbe$t thing I've heard of. If there was truly a problem then diverting to a military base is the only thing that makes sense. Other than that this is all BS and needs to end. Almost every time a flight is diverted there’s some id10t that swears he heard the word bomb. Just as in yesterday’s episode. Those stating so should be arrested for making a false statement and ordered to pay all costs. Hey white people grow up you’re embarrassing the US.

good news for you, askgees - I'm pretty sure that the Transportation Security Administration will not be in charge of healthcare.

askgees: I've always thought that using the word "divert" was incorrect. The idea is to land the plane as soon as possible.

It's so funny when uninformed people get outraged. The airline did not know who made the threat and if a threat is not taken seriously you can imagine the repercussions if something happened. They went to a smaller airport closer to where they were, where they could quickly land and get the passengers off rapidly. And the government will not be in charge of healthcare, either. It's funding people through private insurers. Your old, reliable insurance companies, who care just about your welfare, will still be in charge (including their own de facto "death panels" deciding what to fund and what not to fund). The UK has largely government-run healthcare. The U.S. model, even with the new bill, isn't remotely close.

Who would have thought that 19 people could do so much to change a our country of 309,000,000 people. Now just the WORD "bomb" instills fear. We are cowards, hiding in our own house, scared of our own family members.
