Pistol Prompts Jetliner Return

Sat Feb 14, 2004 4:03 am

A Miami bound American Airlines jet changed course to Turks and Caicos Islands after a passenger alerted the flight crew that she had a pistol. An embarassed Liz Williams, a businesswoman in the Caribbean islands state, told the crew that she had accidently packed the pistol in her carry-on luggage. She did not have to pass though airport security at Providenciales. The passenger had a worried look on her face when she told the crew according to another passenger. The plane returned to Providenciales and arrived in Miami three hours late.


Sorry if this has already been discussed but I could not find anything on the search engine.
