Plane Evacuated After Knife Blade Is Discovered On Board    
01-11-2005 9:33 AM

(Arlington, VA) -- Passengers on American Flight 2255 at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport had to be removed from the aircraft and rescreened after the discovery of what appeared to be a knife on board the plane. It happened last evening when a passenger alerted employees to the blade. All of the passengers were taken off the plane while an investigation got underway. They were able to reboard a short time later and the plane departed for Miami. Authorities are looking into how the knife got on the plane.



So it seems the plane boarded and one of the new passengers found it ?

Did you find a link to the article?

I saw something about it on the late local news last night...

Apparently a passenger found a partially concealed utility blade knife. On the news, they said that authorities were unable to locate the person who was assigned to that seat.

Does anyone know of any websites where I can send money for the "knife found on the plane in Arlington, VA" relief fund?

This is a terrible tragedy

So... it was a law abiding passenger who found it right?  So whats the big deal?

Hell it was probably from a passenger who didnt realize they had it with them and dumped it so they wouldnt get caught with a knife.

More likely some jihadist airport worker / catering employee stashed it, for a compatriot to use in-flight. And the seat-holder chickened or was nabbed.

And I'm stunned at the dickheads in this topic who mock the incident - just over 3yrs since 19 scumbags with boxcutters staggered this Nation - AND the reason for these lameass 'security' checks - yet it appears you've all forgotten wtf it's about.

yes, I mock it.

I'm pissed off that half the passengers on the plane aren't packing 1911's.

(glocks for the other half)

I almost feel sorry for the next terrorist that tries to hijack an American plane with less then a gun. I fully expect to hear about how every passanger on board stood up and whipped his ass up and down the aisle for the duration of the flight, then upon landing handed his hamburgered ass over to the Feds.

No, I mock the sheeple who can be subdued by a FUCKING BOXCUTTER!!
Yes it was a tragic day, yes it was a tragic event. But jesus goddamned almighty christ, someone tell me how 3 people with BOXCUTTERS hijack a plane with 50+ people on board!!
I mean DAMN! I'd go 1 on 1 with a scumsucking terrorist weilding a boxcutter! And 50+ people couldnt take on 3?!
It really goes to show how docile we as a nation are IMO.

No, it just goes to show the times have changed.

You have no idea what you would have done.  At that time, what would usually happen is that you would go spend a few days somewhere hot.  That was before the used airliners as cruise missiles.

The same would not happen now.

Thanks, AOA.  

We're not mocking "the incident", we're mocking the wild overreaction to the presence of a hunk of sharp metal, especially when contrasted with the near-total aversion to carefully screening folks of certain persuasions who disproportionately commit terrorist acts.

Careful you don't step on a feeling there.

Then why is that even though times have changes, people still fear the boxcutter? Why does the government panic over boxcutters? Because they still expect us to cower before those who wield power. They don't really want us to resist on our own. Now that, I can't explain.
