Wi-Fi network ‘Bomb on Board’ forces airplane to make emergency landing

Published on : Monday, December 4, 2017

Turkish AirlinesA flight of Turkish Airlines was compelled to make an emergency diversion on Thursday when the flight crew suddenly detected a mobile Wi-Fi network named ‘Bomb on Board’.

 

This flight had been heading from Nairobi to Istanbul.

 

It thereafter had to be diverted to Khartoum in Sudan when the flight staff noticed the suspiciously named Wi-Fi network.

 

Following the emergency landing all the 100 passengers had to leave the airplane for the purpose of inspection.

 

A leading news media agency stated that the Wi-Fi network being in discussion was created on board the flight.

 

It went on to mention that no irregularities were observed after the security procedures were conducted and all passengers were brought back on the airplane after boarding restarted.

 

This airline did not reveal of security was capable of determining which passenger had created the Wi-Fi network.

 

This actually is not really the first time that a suspiciously named hotspot had led to problems on a flight.

 

Last year a flight of Qantas out of Melbourne was delayed from taking off for two hours after a passenger noticed a network ‘Mobile Detonation Device’.
