State visit to Taiwan in progress…

    A Cathay Pacific flight that was due to travel from London to Hong Kong with 262 passengers on board at 10.20pm on Saturday was delayed following a “crew-related incident” a spokesperson for the airline said.

    The Metropolitan police said they were called to a staff search area at Heathrow at around 9.10pm on Saturday and found a member of a flight crew in possession of knives. “Officers attended and subsequently a member of the flight crew, a man, was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and possession of a knife blade / sharp pointed article in a public place.

    NIMBY, I’m sure Hemmers will be flying on the EVA Air Hello Kitty Jet so there’s nothing to fear (the Hello Kitty Murder was just so 1999).

    Apparently someone else likes the NIMBY name, as the olde NIMBY who has haunted this place for some year or so did not post the 2nd comment.
