Fire Crackers Causes Air China 738 Diversion

Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:52 pm

How on Earth the fire crackers went through security screeners ? Are the security standards in the Chinese airports that bad ?? And what is the idea of "searching for a bomb" when was clearly established that the fire crackers were in the hand bag of a child on board and he handed off the thing to the cabin crew ??

I don't know why you're so shocked... We live in a world where loaded .22 caliber handguns go undetected past airport "security."

This is standard procedure following an incident where an explosive device has been discovered onboard.
