From CBC News:
TORONTO - A published report says an Air Canada plane scheduled to fly from Toronto to New York on Sept. 11 had box cutters on board, and is now the subject of an RCMP investigation.

Quite frightening to think that it could have been much, much worse.

Box cutters were also found on that day's BRU-ATL flight (Delta Air) and another flight where a Yemeni man was found with box cutters and stolen Lufthansa unifroms.

Sorry Mika but other than what the news article stated I don't have any other details. The exact wording from the article didn't specify.

"Investigators on both sides of the Atlantic now have evidence that there were at least six hijack teams and 30 terrorists scheduled to take part in the Sept. 11 operation. The Guardian is reporting in today's edition that knives were found on a Continental Airlines flight that was supposed to leave New Jersey's Newark Airport on the morning of Sept. 11."

This is the only Guardian article I found but it still doesn't give much more information.

Bove, the incident you are talking about was on Sept. 11. That flight diverted to YYZ when the directive came out to ground all aircraft. The man was found with four sets of false ID and two Luftansa pilot uniforms. No further word has been heard except that he is still in custody awaiting extradiction to the US.

Canadian fighters on that day forced down some Air China or a some other Chineese airline 747 in the Yukon. I heard this on CBC. They we're heading to LAX. The terrorists had westcoast targets pickedd out as well. Most likely the Golden Gate Bridge or that tall ugly building in LA that is the tallest in the city.

The Air Canada, Flight 704 (YYZ-LGA) incident is frightening indeed, as are the other grounded flights where box cutters were found on-board the aircraft. I'm wondering, though?,was AC 704 destined to "attack" NYC, or perhaps a target in Toronto? (The CN Tower or the 83 storey ScotiaTower?). The reason I say this is because of the fact that by the time AC704 would have reached NYC, there would be minimal fuel supplies on-board to create the monstrous, deadly explosions that were the result of AA11 and UA175.

Can some kind person explain exactly what a "box-cutter" is? Is it what Brits would call a "Stanley Knife"? i.e. a Palm-size rectangular metal case with about a 1.5 inch protuding screw-in removable blade, razor sharp to cut stuff like carpet. Or is it much bigger in dimensions? Thanks very much

Standby,
You are correct. Box cutters is our generic name for the Stanley and its many variation/imitations. You can buy them here with the body made out of plastic, making less likely to trip the metal detectors. My belt buckles (normal size - not Texas size  Smile ) rarely set them off and they have more metal in them than a simple razor blade from a box cutter.

The airliner "forced down" on 9/11 was a Korean Air flight that flew into Alaskan, then Canadian airspace with a "7500" as its' transponder code...the code for hijack.

It turned out to be a mistake, the airplane landed with escort at Yellowknife I believe. But not before a half dozen supertankers were scrambled at the Valdez oil port in Alaska and told to immeadiately put to sea.

Stormin - Thanks for the info. Jeez, it seems inconceivable that something as small as a Stanley could produce results like that. It still sends a shudder down my spine thinking about what forced those flight crew to leave their cockpit seats.
