    Cathay Pacific flight gets military escort to Vancouver after bomb
    threat-



    VANCOUVER — A Cathay Pacific Airbus from Hong Kong was escorted by
    two CF18 Hornet fighter jets to Vancouver International Airport after a
    bomb threat Saturday.North American Aerospace Defence
    Command officials sent the fighter jets to intercept a Vancouver-bound
    Cathay Pacific flight Saturday afternoon after receiving reports of a
    security threat involving the plane.Major Holly
    Apostoliuk, with the Canadian NORAD Region headquarters, said the two
    jets were scrambled under NORAD command from a forward operating base at
    Canadian Forces Base Comox as a precaution."In this case
    only as a precaution did we intercept and escort the aircraft until it
    landed safely," Apostoliuk said.Alisa Cooper, a
    spokesperson for Vancouver International Airport, said RCMP confirmed it
    was a bomb threat after the passengers had safely disembarked from the
    plane. Cooper said no one was injured and RCMP deemed the aircraft to be
    safe.Some of the passengers on board the flight were
    unaware of what was unfolding when the fighter jets emerged alongside
    their plane.Jing Vance, 57, and her daughters Erica and
    Candace were on the flight, which originated from Kuala Lumpur but made a
    stop in Hong Kong.Jing said there was nothing odd or
    suspicious about the flight until her daughter Candace, sitting in a
    window seat, saw the fighter jet flying next to the plane with about 20
    minutes to go in the flight. "I don't think the staff even
    realized. I was sitting opposite an airline stewardess when we were
    just about to land and she was talking to another passenger and
    passenger said 'Did you notice there is a fighter jet outside' and [the
    stewardess] said 'Oh really? Oh that's really interesting. I've never
    seen one before' and everyone was quite surprised and taking pictures,"
    Jing said."I was waving to him. He just looked back. …We
    didn't think about it too much at the time," Candace said.Jing
    said the flight was on time and the passengers exited the plane
    normally. It wasn't until her family came to the baggage claim that
    security appeared and surrounded the carousel."We all had
    to step back. They were very serious," Jing said.When
    passengers did get their bags they were all thoroughly searched in a
    back room by airport security, Jing said.The family left
    their bags to be delivered by a courier but was nonetheless delayed by
    four hours and missed its connecting flight back home to Nanaimo.Cathay
    Pacific's flight 838 inbound from Hong Kong, was listed as having
    arrived at 1:35 p.m. Images showed the plane on an isolated stretch of
    tarmac that is situated away from the main airport terminal. The
    fighter escort caught the attention of Lantzville Mayor Colin Haime,
    who just happened to be outside of his Vancouver Island home with a
    camera in his hands around 1:25 p.m. when the trio of planes passed
    overhead.Haime said the planes were much louder than he's
    used to hearing, which prompted him to look up while he was taking
    pictures for his daughter's high school prom weekend."I
    glanced up and noticed that it was a commercial jet, but it had what
    looked to me like a small fighter-type plane off one wing and another
    one trailing in behind," he said."Jets do occasionally do
    go over, but this one seemed particularly loud."He took a
    picture of the jetliner, which shows one fighter on its wing, and
    forwarded it to The Sun.Haime said he watched the planes
    fly straight before banking to the south at a spot he guessed would have
    been over Nanaimo.
