RAF aircraft accompany an Air India flight to London following an explosives threat.

An Air India flight carrying 327 passengers from Mumbai to Newark was flying over Ireland on Thursday when the airline messaged its pilots about a bomb threat received via email from a sender claiming to be from an anti-Israel terror group.aThe email spoke about fuel mixed with explosives to target three flights, including AI 191a, a source said. In one hour, the flight landed safely at London Stansted, the designated airport for aviation security emergencies, accompanied by two supersonic Typhoons from the British Royal Air Force. The two distinct sonic booms sent local residents and social media into a frenzy. Air India tweeted about the precautionary landing at Stansted, followed by Stansted airport authority and RAF. Photographs posted on Twitter depicted Air India passengers lined up along the aircraft’s staircase, awaiting their turn to be frisked on the tarmac, with cabin luggage inspected by security agencies and detection canines. By the time AI received the message, the plane was already in German airspace. Videos on Twitter showed three aircraft, two Air India aircraft and one RAF fighter, flying in apparent formation. Another video captured the two distinct sonic explosions. (The Air India aircraft that was diverted following reports of a security alert and landed in Stansted, London, on Thursday)An Air India spokesperson stated that the aircraft was diverted in response to a threat letter. At approximately 4 p.m. local time, the Essex Police stated, aFollowing investigations on the aircraft, we have determined there is nothing untoward on board. The aircraft has been returned to Stansted Airport and the operator.a Passengers returned to immigration and security at 5 p.m. The aircraft and its occupants were still at Stansted at the time of press. The sequence of events began in the afternoon in Mumbai, when Mumbai International Airport Ltd informed Air India that they had received a threat letter. aTerrorist threats are always made via phone conversations. This is the first time the message has been sent via email, according to an airport source. The spokesperson for the Mumbai airport declined to comment on the subject. According to our sources, the correspondence was likely sent Thursday morning. Air India officials reviewed the contents of the e-mail while their 11-year-old Boeing 777 (VT-ALK) was overflying German airspace. The sender claimed affiliation with an anti-Israeli group. According to the letter, explosives were mingled with fuel to bring down Lufthansa flight 767 from Mumbai to Munich, Swissair flight 155 from Mumbai to Zurich, and Air India flight 191 from Mumbai to Newark, a source said. Air India officials found the line awe are taking responsibility for the bombing to be the most unsettling. Concerned about a possible repeat of the 1985 Kanishka bombing, in which 329 people were killed when an Air India Boeing 747 exploded over the Atlantic Ocean, AI officials decided not to allow the Boeing 777 to take off, according to a source. Within half an hour, a decision was made and an aACARS messagea, a digital datalink system that allows airline officials on the ground to communicate with their pilots, was sent. By this time, the Boeing 777 had passed over the Isle of Man and entered Northern Ireland airspace. The wreckage of the Kanishka, which was destroyed by explosives concealed in two checked-in luggage and plummeted over the Atlantic, washed up on the southwest coast of Ireland. An AI official stated, a”There was no way we would have allowed this aircraft to cross the Atlantic.” In regards to check-in luggage explosives, Air India had one reason to remain tranquil. The aforementioned Mumbai-Newark flight had no checked baggage. aDue to a difficulty with a previous Newark flight, this aircraft was almost completely occupied. The flight also departed approximately three hours late, at 4:50 a.m. instead of 1:20 a.m., and had weight restrictions and unloaded checked luggage, according to a source. The scheduled departure time may provide insight into why these three aircraft were mentioned in the threatening email. Lufthansa Munich was scheduled to depart at 12:50 a.m., Swissair at 12:55 a.m., and Air India at 1:30 a.m., all within 30 minutes of one another. Air India, unlike the other two airlines, departed late. According to Sahar police, MIAL received the threat letter at 10 a.m. In addition to initiating an investigation, police are in the process of registering a case. According to flightradar24, a live flight monitoring software, Lufthansa landed at 6.40 GMT, Swiss Air landed at 7.15 GMT, which is when Air India was flying over Germany, north of Dusseldorf. MIAL informed the airline about the correspondence at that time. (With assistance from Naomi Canton) Observe as an Air India flight is forced to land at London Stansted due to an explosives threat.
