Dry Run...again??

Remember the Tedd Petrunas story. (here) A bunch of "Muslim" types board a plane refuse to sit down, refuse to cut off cell fone conversation as the plane is ready to taxi, flight crew terrified, heros alerted.  Remember?

It happened again.

This time in Denver.  Once again, Debbie Schlussell has teh story.  Where is the MSM?  Why do we hear little if nothing about these incidents?  Why are the good americans on teh flight protrayed as nervous nellies and dismissed?  I don't know either.  Problem is on this flight was ex Denver Broncos coach, Mike Shanahan.  He may be a lot of things, but whack job he is not.

A spokesperson for the FBI, Kathy Wright, confirmed to 9NEWS that federal investigators were originally called to the scene after receiving a call on a “possible suspicious incident.” Wright said eventually “we determined that it was not an FBI matter.”

Passengers say a bomb-sniffing dog was brought onto the plane and passengers in the first-class cabin we’re asked to go back to coach for a brief amount of time according to passengers on the plane.

John Sloan of Oxnard, California, was on board the flight on Wednesday.
“I have never seen flight attendants so scared in my life. Everything turned out OK, but it was not a very good feeling. It would have been nice to have been updated though this process,” he told 9NEWS by phone.

Sloan says seven men were escorted off of the plane. Two of them were sitting in coach. The other five were sitting in first-class, he says. All were re-booked onto another flight according to United.
Sloan says the men were attempting to change seats with other passengers. Another passenger, who doesn’t want his name used, says the men were also trying to move luggage while the plane was getting ready to push back.

Passengers tell 9NEWS all of the men looked to be “Middle Eastern,” but United will not confirm the identity of the seven men.

Nothing criminal was found, and the flight was allowed to continue on to California.
Passengers also tell 9NEWS that former head coach of the Denver Broncos, Mike Shanahan, was seated in first class while this was all going on. Shanahan could not be reached for comment, and a spokesperson for the former coach simply told 9NEWS that he was “out of town.”

Nothing here, move along.
