    Plane From Paris to Charlotte Diverted Due To Security Issue

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/05/22...tic/?hpt=hp_t1


    A US Airways jetliner en route from Paris to Charlotte, North Carolina, has been diverted to Bangor, Maine, for a "security issue," airline spokesman Andrew Christie told CNN.

    A Transportation Safety Administration statement said the plane has landed safely in Bangor.

    It was a woman claiming she had a device implanted inside of her. Diverted US Airways flight lands in Charlotte; passenger claimed to have surgically implanted device | The Lookout - Yahoo! News
