Toner Cartridge "Bomb" Found On UPS Plane
A toner cartridge that had been modified with wires and a white powder was discovered on a UPS plane at a British airport today. The package originated in Yemen, and while it was found to contain no explosives, it spurred a search of other UPS planes in both Philadelphia and Newark, NJ. This device could have been a test to the security systems being used by UPS. If that was me, the only thing making me feel as though terrorists will never blow up a UPS plane, is the sad fact the value of packages on one of their planes far outweighs the value of a plane filled with passengers.
