Greek plane diverted to London

MSNBC is reporting that a New York bound Olympic Airlines jet was diverted to an airport outside London after a “security alert.” Incident is over.

DEBKA is reporting that the pilot of flight 411 suspected an onboard bomb.

I’ll post more details as they come available.


DEBKA is now reporting that an alert was called in to the Athens daily Ethnos:

Anonymous alert of “bomb for Iraq” phoned into Athens daily Ethnos was relayed to pilot of Athens-New York Olympic Airlines flight 41 who diverted to Britain. RAF Tornado jets scrambled to escort plane to Stansted airport under emergency conditions.

ABC news has some terrific follow up on this story.
