Whatever it is, I blame it on those stupid “It’s logistics” commercials they’ve got running now.
CNN reporting a similar incident at Newark involving UPS plane from Yemen.
Good Beaujolais is rare even in decent years.
Good Nouveau Beaujolais is an oxymoron.
Hmmm...maybe a dirty bomb effort to shut down airports.
Of course just as likely its nothing.
Ping to the thread and post #22.
I had a brief layover in Philly airport this summer.
N E V E R again. I will never know who was at fault but we touch n go landed and were literally told by the pilot afterwards- we did not ‘have permission to land.’ So we circled 100 miles and landed. I was a frequesnt flyer many moons ago and I did not see this as a common mishap. Maybe times have changed? Any FReeper pilots care to comment?
My guess this is AQ testing our ability to detect a radioactive substance coming into the country. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re also bringing in radioactive samples via several other methods.
CNN: TSA tracking reports of “potentially suspicious items” on planes that landed at Newark, NJ, and Philadelphia airports.
So now it’s cargo planes they’re targeting. Trying to disrupt the election, no doubt. Won’t work as Obama is seen by most as weaker than Bush on homeland security. It may be a distraction but not a big factor in the election. And BTW, how’s that talking with Muslims going Barack? Looking forward to your visit in the Indonesian mosque, are you?
Nothing to worry about. Our Fearless Reader has assured us that we can withstand another terrorist attack.
You’re correct. It is just a headline. Newark AND Philly
Nothing to see here...move along.
“Sources say UPS planes in Newark, New Jersey and Queens have also been isolated.”
I doubt that they would mention NEST teams on site...that would surely cause a panic.
I bet any flight arriving from Europe or Middle East will be isolated.
Any UPS flight
How very sad beyond words. The terrorists probably watched Obama on Jon Stewart and knew he is not only lost, weak and inexperienced but he will also be their attorney and call for forgiveness to not offend muslims if they try to pull something.
