The plane was going from AMS to MAD. Apparently, the pilot decided to go back to AMS when he was alerted by a passenger that a man had a bomb. The plane landed safely at 5:30pm.Inmediately after the evacuation of the aircraft, the man was arrested by the Dutch Military Police. More news to come.

According to NOS Nieuws, the plane was enroute from Amsterdam to Madrid when a passenger on board threathened to blow up the plane because he had explosives on him. The flightdeck immediatly returned to Schiphol for an emergency landing. Emergency crews and in partciluar the Dutch military police was standing by for evacuation of the passengers with the slides. All 156 passengers came out of the plane safely. The man who made the bomb threat was arrested around 17.30 local time.

Dutch military police started an investigation of the plane involved, searching for explosives with dogs. The police thinks the passengers will not be able to depart to Madrid this evening. They are being held in a seperate place at the airport for assistance.

Latest update on the situation is that nothing has been found on board the Airbus. The man is detained and it is yet unknown why the man came to this action. It's also unknown which nationality the man has. The plane is due to depart with the passengers to Madrid later this evening.

More details are coming out... Not one man was arrested, but in total five passengers were arrested. The main suspect said shortly after take-off in English that he was going to do something to bring the plane down. The role of the other four is still unknown. Shortly after landing and evacuation, all five could be arrested without any troubles or resistance.

The plane is now enroute to Madrid, carrying 152 passengers now.

Cheers!  wave

the other 4 were travelling with the main "suspect", which is why they too were taken into custody.

All I can say is I hope they get to see the inside of a dutch jail for a while. I hope IB takes legal actions against them to recover the costs involve plus compensation. This sort of behaviour is getting out of hand.

Bullpitt,

From what I have heard this morning they will take legal actions against this man, but most likely in Spain.
I also spoke to the pax this morning who was sitting next to this maniac, and this person was still in shock.

Only one man is still held by the police and charges will be brought against him. The other four turned out to be unrelated to the suspect and have meanwhile been released.

The suspect is a 32-yo male with Spanish nationality.

According the Dutch evening news of April 13, 2006 the man who 'threated with a bom', causing the Iberia emergency landing at Schiphol is released today. Everything was based on a communication error. When the plane took off the man said 'there we go'. A woman next to him thought to understand 'there we go in the air!' supposing he was talking about a bom. The man was just nervous to fly...

Good lord... over a misinterpretation? Have these sorts of false alarms always existed or are we just becoming far too paranoid in this post 9/11 world? Something doesn't make a lot of sense. I mean, granted they found nothing on the airplane to blow it up. But you'd think someone would have questioned the man and asked whether he had actually threatened the plane or if he said something else. Someone must have said, "huh? pardon??", at which that point things should have been sorted out. There's something missing here.
