Bomb threat for Korean Airlines 777

A Korean Airlines Boeing 777 en route from Vancouver to Seoul was diverted to a nearby Canadian Forces base after the airline’s US call center received a bomb threat.
The threat was received yesterday about 25 minutes after take-off from Vancouver International Airport. Airline officials took the decision to turn the aircraft around and two US F-15 fighter jets were scrambled from Portand, Oregon and escorted the plane to Canada’s Comox air base on Vancouver Island – 113 miles outside of Vancouver.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Inspector Byron Massie said the plane was still being searched early Wednesday morning.
