Bomb Threats Forced Two Air France Planes To Land

Two Air France flights, Flight AF055 from Washington Dulles and Flight AF065 from Los Angeles to Paris Charles de Gaulle had been diverted following security alert.

Flight AF055 from Washington Dulles with 262 passengers landed safely in Halifax while Flight AF065 from Los Angeles with 497 people on board, landed safely in Utah.

Sky News reported that the airline received anonymous threats for both flights after they took off.

Air France made a statement that, “As a precautionary measure and to conduct all necessary security checks, Air France, applying their safety regulations in force, decided to request the landings of both aircraft.”

Authorities are carrying out full inspections of the aircrafts, passengers and their luggage.

The Wave is an amazing red sandstone rock formation located in the Arizona and Utah border on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, on the Colarado Plateau.

Hugo Martin from the Los Angeles Times said:

“You can’t call yourself a landscape photographer if you haven’t snapped a photo or two of the Wave.”

Permit is needed to visit this site and only 20 people are allowed to visit The Wave each day.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management limits access to protect The Wave’s delicate red sandstone formation and to prevent overcrowding at the designated wilderness site in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in St. George, Arizona.
