2. Something to do with this, maybe?
Major UK air terror plot thwarted

Press Association
Thursday August 10, 2006 7:08 AM

A major terrorist plot to allegedly blow up aircraft in mid-flight has been thwarted.

The plot was foiled in a joint intelligence-led operation by the Metropolitan Police's anti-terrorist branch and security service.

It is believed the aim was to detonate explosive devices smuggled on board the aircraft in hand luggage, and that the attacks would have been targeted flights from the UK to the USA. Overnight, police arrested a number of people in London.

Thursday's arrests are the culmination of a major covert counter-terrorist operation lasting several months.
