Description

A passenger is facing charges for allegedly threatening to “blow up” a Panama-bound plane that was escorted back to Toronto’s Pearson airport by two U.S. military jets. According to a video filmed by a passenger, officers shouted “hands up, heads down” as they boarded the plane shortly after it landed at about 9 a.m. The tactical unit arrested Ali Shahi, 25. Police charged the Canadian citizen with uttering threats and endangering the safety of an aircraft. The RCMP said its national security enforcement team is assisting with the investigation. Sunwing Flight 772 left Toronto at 7 a.m. with 183 passengers — including two infants — and a crew of six, and returned to Toronto at about 9 a.m. Video credits: Phil Thompson, Alain Alphonso
