Hi guys, couldn't find this posted here before. Today, two passengers were arrested at TXL Airport because they were overheard talking about highjacking an airplane. Police forces were tipped-off by another passenger who claimed that she had eavesdropped a suspicious talk between the two men in Russian language "at the counter". The two Russian Nationals were arrested upon boarding AB flight 8352 to DME, which was subsequently delayed for 5 hours. The two suspects are still questioned. They were unarmed, but both had a pilot licence (whatever this is about to imply...). The a/c (an A320) was searched for weapons and other suspicious items, without any results. Let's hope this all turns out as as another "someone let drop a word without thinking about it" incident.
