Germanwings Bomb Threat Proves To Be Hoax

Germanwings Bomb Threat Proves To Be Hoax

Germanwings flight 826, service between Cologne and Milan, was forced to be evacuated after the airline received a bomb threat via an e-mail.

The plane had already departed its gate at Cologne and was proceeding to the runway when the threat came to the attention of the airline.  The airline was parked in a remote location of the airport where 126 passengers were forced to evacuate.

Predictably, German Federal Police and their sniffer dogs were unable to find any explosives and passengers were put on another aircraft for their flight to Milan.
