Two F-15 fighters were scrambled to escort flight 787 with 179 passengers and nine crew on board, after a woman handed a flight attended a note saying that she had a bomb surgically implanted in her.
Passengers were not aware of the two fighter jets because they were advised to keep their shades down during a film, said Stuart Frankel, from Baltimore.
