BANGOR, Maine A US Airways jet flying from Paris to Charlotte, North Carolina, has been diverted to Maine because of what an airline spokesman calls a "security issue."
A North American Aerospace Defense Command spokesman says two F-15 fighters were scrambled to escort the plane.
A person briefed on the incident said a passenger announced she had a surgically implanted device. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because it involved sensitive law enforcement information.
US Airways spokesman Andrew Christie says the jet with 179 passengers was diverted around noon Tuesday to Bangor International Airport. He says there was a "security issue" on Flight 787.

Maybe she got drunk and was bragging how magnificent her boobs were and that “if I showed you my boobs your head would explode”.
pacemaker has a vote.
An actual terrorist threat would not involve announcing that one has an implanted device, imo.
I hope this ends well for all the passengers and crew. However, if the woman was stupidly referring to some device planted for health reasons (or cosmetics) it will not go well for her. Either way, the passengers must be very upset, to say the least.
“An actual terrorist threat would not involve announcing that one has an implanted device, imo.”
It might if they wanted to hijack the plane and not just blow it up.
Diverted to Bangor? Is this the plot of The Langoliers II?
In these days of idiocy on parade, it could very well be that someone mentioned a normal surgical implant of some kind during a simple conversation, and this is the stupid result.

Unless they had 2nd thoughts. Bastards; hunt them down and kill all of them.
interesting factoid from your link:
The Bangor [Maine] airport is accustomed to dealing with diverted flights. It’s the first large U.S. airport for incoming European flights, and it’s the last U.S. airport for outgoing flights, with uncluttered skies and one of the longest runways on the East Coast. Aircraft use the airport when there are mechanical problems, medical emergencies or unruly passengers.
We must not have a boob implant gap, Gen. Buck Turgidson.
"I have a behm implant..."
They said she was acting strange. Maybe the silicone leaked and has affected her. Photographic proof will help us decide if she is guilty or not.
Yes, we have a little cottage industry going here involving hauling drunk Brits off flights, dragging them down to the conveniently located Federal Building (mere minutes from the airport) for processing and then kicking them back out. :-)
