Airline bomb plot thwarted

Thank goodness.

British authorities said Thursday they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage. Heathrow was closed to most flights from Europe, and British Airways canceled all its flights Thursday between the airport and points in Britain, Europe and Libya.

When I got in my car this morning, the radio was my first source of news. At the time I turned on my car, they were talking about grounding flights. It was a somewhat rude and chilling way to start the day.

So this is what a red terror alert looks like.
