Man’s Vintage Camera Mistaken for Bomb, Causes Emergency Landing

 

A flight was forced to make an emergency landing in NYC this weekend after a woman mistook a fellow passenger’s vintage camera for a bomb. The suspected terrorist was pinned to the tarmac before authorities figured out he was a camera enthusiast.

 

The New York Times and NY Daily News report that American Airlines Flight 4817 from Indianapolis made an emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport at about 3pm Saturday and that a passenger had been taken in to custody on suspicion of carrying a bomb onto the airplane.

 

The incident reportedly occurred after a woman spotted a fellow passenger scrolling through videos and photos of vintage cameras. She mistook the images of vintage cameras for bombs and believed that the passenger was looking up bomb-making instructions.

 

The woman’s paranoia peaked after the man pulled out his own vintage camera and began fiddling with its settings — she believed that he was setting a timer on a bomb’s detonator.

 

She then notified a flight attendant and the pilots decided to land in Queens.
