Okay, this is new in terms of terrorism. Never seen this situation before.

We may have a problem here.

Well crap, what do they do here? They have to land the planes, otherwise they're going to cause potential harm when blown up in the air. But if they land the planes, you've got potential collateral damage on the ground, not to mention the sitting ducks on the planes. Jeez man. Remind me never to travel to Belgium.

So are these passengers who were on the two planes with the bomb threats, or are these all the planes that were to take off from Brussels?
