Northwest 747 Stopped @ Sea-Tac By FBI

Thu Nov 01, 2001 4:31 am

Hi everyone,

Was watching the Today show here in Calgary. We get our signal from KHQ or KREM or something, and they reported on their local newsbreak that a Northwest 747 from Tokyo(?) was stopped at Sea-Tac as the FBI arrested and interrogated 2 passengers, removing their baggage from the plane.

Nothing was said on the Today show itself, or on CNN.com or NWA.com

Is this a mistake, or related to the SQ flight, or is it real? Can anyone from the Inland Northwest let us know?

Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

I heard this story on the local Seattle TV news this morning. A story has been posted on the Seattle Times web site.
