"BA Alerts Passengers After Radiation Grounds Jets (Update1)
By Scott Hamilton and Alex Morales
Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- British Airways Plc is contacting 33,000 passengers after traces of radiation were found on two planes and a third was grounded
as part of the investigation into the death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.
Europe's third-biggest airline took the three Boeing 767 aircraft out of service, two in London and one in Moscow, after scientists found ``very low
traces of a radioactive substance'' on two of them, British Airways said late yesterday in a statement. The airline ``understands that from advice
it has been given that the risk to public health is low.''

to the mods, I hope my attempt to relay a story is correctly done.
My thoughts on this. Sad, flying is not the safest way to travel. forget about the dangers of the goverment hyjacking the planes. gotta worry about a
radiation plagued russian spy (god rest his soul) and the people who killed them doing a sloppu job and effecting others. they should start worrying
about items on planes that pose a threat such as radioactive material and not water. my tired 2 cents at 5:25am
