The thought of a bunch of terrorist running around with pen and paper is enough to tighten up the ole sphincter ay.

Is everyone with writing materials now a suspect as with liquid in a container?

Now will there be a ban on bic.

Either the "evil killers" or the NWO has manipulated the sheep right into the slaughtering pens.

It's a brave new world, welcome to the monkey house!!!!!

Do you know how many YEARS these notes have been found on planes? And there have never even been a DISCUSSION about banning pens and papers. Or lipstick, or anything ELSE that you can write with.

I'm sorry guys but maybe I just don't get it. First, there is a suspicious note found on the plane. Maybe its the media not telling us everything but they go from suspicious note to bomb threat. Did the note say there was a bomb? We are missing those facts first of all. I cannot find anything on the news sites that says more than a suspicious note was found. Also, why would terrorists leave a note saying there is a bomb on the plane? I'm no detective but hasn't been most of the terrorists been more involved in these terrorist activities such as being martyrs and defending there causes up front? Why would one of them just leave a note. I may be missing more information but from what i gather from the info i was given....seems like crap.

Because it wasn't a terrorist. It was a bored college student, or someone with a grudge against the airline. Or someone who was sitting in front of a 4 year old who was kicking their seatback the entire flight, or.......

But it doesn't matter because you HAVE to take it seriously.

It really amazes me, the ludicrousness of it all. Every other day they seem to put out more of these terror scares. Its obvious the Elite are afraid of something...but what? Terrorists or a rapidly awakening mankind?


Seems like another dose of fear, courtesy of your loving government. I think its obvious the war on terror is really a war on your mind.

Yeah, because again, one note every few weeks (if that) out of MILLIONS of flights is going to cause massive amounts of fear and terror in the world, and let them take away more rights.

I seriously can not believe how long this thread has gone, with all this crap.

PUHLEEZE PEOPLE!!!!!! Grow the he(double hockey sticks) UP! (Come on! Group hug)

The FAA is on a heightened alert.

Since this seems to be 'foreign' to so many of you, let me explain.

The airline industry operates on procedures. Without these procedures they'd go bunk, just as any corporation. Procedures were developed to keep everyone on the same page, and as reference to any future obstacles.

Security makes up a portion of the business' (FAA) daily operating procedure.

A month ago, the airlines were at a lower level of security. One of the 'procedures' of being at a lower level, has to do with 'situational reaction'.

So, let's say the note and/or nail polish were discovered a month ago. The airline employee would refer to their employee manual and/or FAA policies manual and determin what the next move may be.

Given the same scenerio, only at a lowered security level, they may have been required to request(first, politely) for the nail polish to be closed as it's fumes are bothering the other passengers. Well, the new level of security will prompt them to choose (C) instead of (B) and follow the procedure stated.

Get it?

Alas, I do not believe a bomb threat has ABC options. The plane gets diverted and/or a friendly twin eagle escort every time.

Remember grade school? I still do. In fact, I (faintly) remember sitting with friends while they masked their voices w/a dish towel and using their "big-boy" voice to leave a 'bomb threat' on the school answering machine. We were all 'latch-key' kids and were looking forward to a day of fun w/no adults. Well, didn't go so well. They did cancel school, but also called the kid's mom and suspended him for 3 days.

Hmmm, now that I think of it, they did cancel school even though they knew who called. I wonder? Is it the NWO out to get us kids? Damn!! I wish I knew that at the time, I was always itching to join some club (or gang - lol).

Come on guys! You've both been here long enough to know that dgtempe just like's arguing with the cute boys at ATS.

that reminds me of the morons who wanted to start spring break a day early at college.

called in a bomb threat from thier dorm room.

too bad a genius had the same idea the year before so they were ready for it, and had an early version of caller ID (this was the early 90's)

got federal crime?

Early 90s? Hey, you're right up there with me. By the looks of it, I may have a been a year ahead of you!

Did I say (type) "gradeschool"? Okay, you got me!

You didn't go to U of A, did you? hmmmm.

Now that the terrorists have seen what disruption they can cause with just a lipstick or pen they don't even need to sneak bombs on board.

Does anyone see this kind of thing dieing out, or do you think it's just going to get worse with time??

posted on Aug, 29 2006 @ 05:33 AM
It's already been going on for at least 5 years that they've been reporting more, and 7 or 8 that I've followed, and it hasn't gotten any worse yet. One plane being diverted is NOT a disruption. It is for the people on the plane and the people waiting for the plane, but it's NOT a major disruption.

As for me, i've had a long airlines career with 3 different airlines. I know the drill.

Sure, its possible to "miss" something...but that's not really the point i'm trying to make here.


Are you serious? I wish I could see everybody here just long enough to ask for a show of hands of how many have found some other passenger's paper-wrapped gum, plastic cup, used napkins/utensils, headphones (in those lucky instances), magazines, books, ticket stubs, receipts, notes, etc. on a plane (particularly in the seat pocket in front of them.

I bet 80% would raise their hands. Just sheer speculation, of course, but if, in your long and distinguished career you are telling me that you and your colleagues never (or nearly never) missed anything, I'd have to say you either don't actually know what you've missed, or else you wouldn't have missed it (duh!), or, I've never had the pleasure of flying on your immaculately cleaned airline.

It is a safe bet that EVERY time I fly, I will find some leftover garbage in the pocket in front of me. Cleaners or no. Clearly you weren't cleaning my planes. So isn't it actually quite reasonable to assume that others are not so thorough as you and that it is more than "possible" that some passenger left this threatening note? That it is, in fact, likely?

I think so.

I have to agree dgtempe... It's a new day.. a new "terror alert" or a new "incident" doesnt it seem that there was NOTHING going on for YEARS.. and now.. the November election pot is stirring and.. So are the "Terrorists" so all the good little "Republican extremist voters" can spew out "Protect us oh mighty lord of the world your worship supreme Chancellor of all that is living George W. Bush"...

It's all Government Propaganda BULL.. It's crap.. it's spooky language that's being used to try to scare the masses... Terror tactics being used to capture votes and perpetuate this NONSENSE and these CRIMES against the American people and the human race

And is it working? Is it not true that the more these incidents happen and get reported, the more support the 'War on Terror' gets?

Is it working? I dont know, I dont buy into the bull...

And I dont believe the "war on terror" is gaining more support.. EVERYONE is beoming frustrated with it.. The Politicians, the Citizens, the UN, the WORLD in general.. and most importantly.. The Soldiers fighting in the "war".... I believe that if the USA tries to Invade Iran... that few Soldiers will follow their orders.. Atleast I hope thats the case

Does anyone remember the proverb and tale of the boy who cried wolf?

Raise a false alarm enough, and when there really is a problem, we do not react with belief nor haste.

I think we are being set-up for desensitizing to terror for something major to go down, then the powers that be will triumphantly exclaim... " Look a Wolf!, now do you believe us? press 1 if you want us to take your rights away ,for the illusion of your safety"

Anyone else agree?


P.S. I also have a feeling once we get the Dumb and Dumber team out of office, Terrorism threats will all but go away in the U.S.A. Then possibly we will grow complacent, then something awful terror related happens again (obviously to slap us, for clapping because they can't fool us anymore ). Meanwhile the republicans capitilize on that event and get the presidency back in 2012?

I'm sure I've just heard on the radio that Ryanair (cheap airline here in UK) is going to be the first airline to allow mobile phones inside the plane (not the cargo). That would make it really easy for would be terrorists.

Really easy to do what? Call Allah?
I could be wrong. But would 1800 mA battery power from a phone (I used the battery power from my personal phone as a reference) be powerful enough to detonate ANYTHING?... It's my personal belief that this whole thing about "Terrorists" and planes is horse *&#$ but lets just say this is happening for a minute.. These would be "Terrorists" are farmers.. and simple folk.. not MacGyver... I doubt MANY of them have ever used a cellphone.. Let alone know the inner workings of them WELL enough to turn one into a "Detonator"...

OR... Could this whole thing be a ploy.. to let "someone" get a phone on board... and "use it" to.. do who knows what with... It's unrealistic... but given the world we live in today, not unlikely.. And I'm sure if some terrible act happens.. there will be a cellphone COMPLETELY untouched and unburned.. probably still in the box... just.. neatly.. planted.. er I mean FOUND.. found at the scene
