Turkish Airlines plane in Istanbul searched after bomb threat
ISTANBULA Turkish Airlines aircraft at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport was searched after a note threatening a bomb attack was found on board on May 23.
The plane, which was set to fly to the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri, was evacuated and postponed after a note with “bomb” written on it was found in the bathroom at around 3:50 p.m.
The note was found by the cabin crew as they were checking the bathrooms before taking off.
The bomb alert turned out to be false and all 134 people, including the crew, were due to fly to Kayseri with another plane.
