Suspicious white substance on plane turns out to be toilet paper

(CNN) -- A suspicious white substance in an airplane bathroom?

It could be anthrax, could be explosive residue or -- as authorities in California learned Friday -- it could be toilet paper.

The white dust appeared in the back lavatory of Alaska Airline's Flight 508 soon after it took off Friday afternoon from Seattle, said Bobbie Eagan, a spokeswoman for the carrier. Sometime during the 1,000-mile flight, the flight's crew notified authorities about the unknown substance and asked for help.

Fire department crews, law enforcement officers and hazardous materials experts circled the plane soon after it touched down shortly after 4 p.m. at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California, according to Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus.

2. Ah, so now every terrorist wanna-be...
...can take a whiz, rub some TP together on the counter... and wast a hundred man-hours of law-enforcement time.


Yay, America.
