A Turkish Airlines aircraft at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport was searched after a note threatening a bomb attack was found on board on May 23.

The plane, which was set to fly to the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri, was evacuated and postponed after a note with “bomb” written on it was found in the bathroom at around 3:50 p.m.
The note was found by the cabin crew as they were checking the bathrooms before taking off.

The bomb alert turned out to be false and all 134 people, including the crew, were due to fly to Kayseri with another plane.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
