BA steward arrested after mid-air bomb threat

Tuesday, 20 Feb, 2012 0

A British Airways flight steward is due to appear in court later this month after being charged with making a mid-air bomb threat.

Mathew Davis, 22, was on the Tokyo to London flight with 150 passengers on board when it is alleged he scrawled a message on a toilet door that caused the scare, reports the Daily Mail.

The message is claimed to have said: ‘The bomb on board will explode at 16.00 GMT unless our demands are met’.

Davis was arrested when the long-haul Boeing 777 plane safely touched down at Heathrow airport.

Police searched the passenger plane but no explosives were found on board.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said Davis, from Crawley, West Sussex, was charged with communicating a bomb threat and is due to appear at Uxbridge magistrates court on 28 February.
