Japanese immigration officials were questioning the men, who said they did not have passports."

    A South Jersey woman got the scare of her life when she tried to report suspicious activity on board a plane Philadelphia International Airport. The woman shared details of her terrifying ordeal only with Fox 29 News on Wednesday. Now, she's wondering if it was some kind of sick joke or a test run for a terrorist. Fox 29's Dave Schratwieser reported that 12 days after her red-eye flight from Los Angeles, the US Airways passenger is still upset over an incident on her flight, the reaction to it by the flight crew, and the lack of reaction from authorities....

    SNIPPET: "A Sun Express Boeing 737-800, registration TC-SUO performing flight XQ-973 from Stuttgart (Germany) to Izmir (Turkey) with 62 passengers and 6 crew, was enroute overhead Skopje (Macedonia), when a crew member found a note in one of the lavatories saying "Today we will die, boom"." SNIPPET: "Greek police detained a man carrying a marker pen of the same color as the note written on the lavatory's mirror, but later permitted him to continue the journey. After the airplane arrived in Izmir, Turkish police detained the man again and interviewed him. The man was released without charges after the interview."

    We now know the Russian planes were blown up by 1) women 2) from the toilets.

More here, including the likely effect on the racial profiling debate.

    A woman who was paralyzed after disobeying warnings to remain in her seat during a turbulent flight over Texas has suffered the same type of catastrophic injuries as the late Christopher Reeve, according to a nurse who first treated her. "She is paralyzed from the shoulder area down to her toes," said Kathy Fulp, a nurse at the McAllen Medical Center, where two passengers and one crew member from Continental flight 511 from Houston to McAllen were taken early Saturday morning after being injured mid-flight. Fulp told that the 47-year-old, whom she declined to identify by name, suffered a...
