Transatlantic Flight Diverted Due to Concerns of Possible Terrorism

On Tuesday, a US Airways flight that was on its way from Paris to North Caroline had to be diverted to Maine when a passenger told a flight attendant that she had a surgically-implanted device.  Officials have said that there is no evidence the flight was ever in danger, but the FBI and the Homeland Security Department have given warnings about the possibility of terrorists using surgically-implanted bombs so they could bypass airport security.


According to U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, there were two doctors on board the flight who examined the woman, but found no signs of surgical procedures.  The woman is a French citizen who was born in Cameroon.  The Boeing Flight 787 was escorted to Bangor International Airport by two F-15 fighters.  The flight had 179 passengers and nine crew members on board.  One passenger, Stuart Frankel of Baltimore, said that they saw a lot of police and federal customs officials escort the handcuffed woman off the plane.
