Man calls in bomb threat to make a flight that he missed

Federal prosecutors Thursday, July 26, charged thirty-one-year-old Kou Wei Chiu, a Nashville doctor, with making a bomb threat because he missed his flight out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Investigators said the threat forced the Memphis-bound plane to turn around in mid-air and return to the airport. According to an FBI affidavit, Chiu admitted that he used an airport pay phone to call 911 three times after he arrived at gate S-7 too late to board his Northwest Airlines flight Wednesday. [AP]
