CTV Newsnet has a thing on their ticker saying that a Virgin 747 was jsut permitted to leave the east coast.... Can anyone confirm this? Why were they there for so long? Was there some other reason for it?

There was a bomb threat onboard that was later determined to be a hoax. CF-18 fighter jets were scrambled and escorted the airliner just in case...and I'm glad they did.

Understood. Thanks folks.

So all two members of the Canadian Air Force got some action, eh?  Smile Look out, before we send our five ground troops!
