Thu Aug 16, 2012 7:10 am

BBC World is reporting that an Aeroflot flight to SVO that departed JFK in Weds, 8/15 has diverted to Iceland due to a "threat". The aircraft is now on the ground and is being searched. Hopefully nothing major.

Hopefully just another bored nutcase, and not a real threat. According to local media bomb specialists are now searching the 330.

A second bomb threat is being reported in Russia that was phoned in to Russian Authorities before Polet flight VQ-751 was able to depart Moscow Domodedovo towards Voronezh.
