One was a Korean 747, and the other was some cargo plane, both flying from Korea. They were NOT forced down but were intercepted because the pilots said that they were 'in trouble'.... they later explained that the fuel was the problem, so they were diverted to Whitehorse. I know that the Korean 747 landed in Whitehorse, i don't know about the other one..

....from CBC news about 4:15pm est
