A bomb threat note found aboard a plane landing at the Denver International Airport forced an expedited landing and an evacuation of the plane.



Passengers were eventually given the OK to recover their belongings.

    So many crazy idiots in this world, surprised this doesn’t happen more often.

    Glad everyone is okay.


    But it is so funny to joke about this on twitter.

    Is that Dutch girl still in custody? Has anyone seen her lately?

      It must be her since mommy likely took her Tweeter away by now. It was a paper note right?

      I think she’s out partying with Demi Lovato tonight.

    Hey Harry, whoever left the note is an example of a terrorist you farging nitwit.

    The first thing I thought when I saw this story was, what was the name of that gimmicky TV movie (written by Rod Serling, I think) about a plane that, once it had flown in the upper atmosphere, an explosive on board would be triggered on descent into Los Angeles at altitude 1000 above sea level– so they finally figured, we’ll never find the bomb and defuse it, so land in Denver at 5000 above sea level, simple, easy as pie!

    I know, it’s not funny to all the people aboard, nor to the airline, nor to the authorities– but this is what happens when you watch too much TV in your misspent youth…

    Let me guess, some disgruntled ass hat was upset because he got his man boobs groped at check in.

    Five years, no parole.

    Hopefully the idiot left a fingerprint. Gitmos or Levenworth are nice this time of year.
