RG8721 Delayed Due To Bomb Threat

Mon Mar 14, 2005 8:34 pm

Hear this morning on the radio that the only flight delayed to arrive in GRU is RG8721 CDG/GRU due to a bomb threat. Anybody hear something about this?

I checked everywhere but could not find anything.

The pilot was notified of the threat just before take-off. The MD-11 was diverted to a safe location in the airport where all passangers (263 pax + 14 crew) were evacuated and French authorites searched the plane, thankfully nothing was found.
