Bomb threat halts flight at John Wayne Airport

By SEAN EMERY / THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

SANTA ANA – Authorities are investigating a bomb threat involving an airplane at John Wayne Airport on Tuesday night, Orange County Sheriff's Department officials said.

A plane is being held in isolation after authorities received the threat about 8:10 p.m., Lt. Joe Balicki said. Article Tab: image1-Bomb threat halts flight at John Wayne Airport ADVERTISEMENT

Southwest Flight 811 was preparing to depart to Phoenix when a "nonspecific" threat was reported to Phoenix authorities, said Jenny Wedge, a John Wayne Airport spokeswoman.

Sheriff's officials described it as a bomb-threat, indicating that the department's bomb squad has been called in to investigate.

"The plane was getting ready to taxi, and they managed to stop the plane and isolate it," Balicki said.

Yep. How easy would it be for the Muzzies to call in about 50 bomb threats at different airports and shut everything down?

President Obama’s CIA has an undercover agent calling in these threats.

They might even throw in a real bomb here and there to keep the threats credible. Nice to know the WOT is over.

Since it was a specific plane, I bet somebody’s ex-girlfriend/wife was on it, and they wanted to prevent it from leaving. That is where my money is, any takers?

Wouldn’t surprise me a bit. But Al Qaeda-niks are watching the news, too. And they may be insane, but they aren’t stupid.

Damn. Bomb threats, kidnappings, soldiers being killed in Trashkanistan. Seems like things were safer before The War On Terror was over.

Interesting.....
Somebody in government creates the problem and then suggests the solution.

John Wayne, Don John of Austria, and Raynald de Chatillon would have this problem solved in a matter of weeks.

Have long suspected that muz terrorists are using a code for talking to one another. Break the code, if a code exists, and one realizes the terrorists maybe are talking to each other via dates and perhaps other source(s) which could be their unholy book(s).

It must be. They caught a guy trying to smuggle a .40 cal and loaded magazine in his 4 year old’s stuffed animals.

They let him go.

I’d bet it’s closer to your theory than the usual “ROP” exclamations.

Moslems aren’t interested in giving warnings, and they really aren’t interested in minor airports. They tend to start big.

If it’s a Moslem, he’s probably doing it on his own recognizance, not coordinated with any big organizations.

I know authorities have to take bomb threats seriously, but can anyone recall even one case where a bomb threat was followed by discovery or detonation of an actual bomb? I certainly can't, at least not in real life (it happens all the time in movies, though).

Real bombers don't announce their intentions in advance. Kind of defeats the purpose.

I like it too. It was a lot more convenient when I went to Disneyland in 2007 than LAX would've been. 10 minutes away from the park, baggage claim much easier.

About the disgruntled ex-spouse...

Why would there also be a threat made to the other location, if it were just the guy/gal in L.A. area?

I stated, “CLOSER” to his idea, not exactly that.

Could be just general scum doing it for fun. Happens at schools too many times.

OTOH, while they are minor airports, it’s strange that they are so far apart.

Still, could be some other more common scumbag or scumbag group. Moslems like to do it big and they don’t like to tell anyone, because they want death.

OK, you got me thinking.... it could be a disgruntled (ex)employee....

We had threats called in to a place I used to work at; they started after someone was let go & we knew it because it would always happen right when we were scheduled to ship a large order.

How easy would it be for the Muzzies to call in about 50 bomb threats at different airports and shut everything down?

Well, since they run most of the Gas Stations that are also CELL PHONE DEALERS, I think just one of them could make 50 calls on 50 different phones, and then just throw them away.

So... really, really, easy.

Ah... thinking outside the box, refusing to accept the general 'perception'.

I'm with you. Even if another bomb threat occurred somewhere else (which it did), your explanation is just as possible. Wonder if we will know the truth, when it's all over?
