Anchorage International Airport, Alaska, is evacuated because of a 'bomb threat
, 14 Oct 2012, 5:45 AM CDT

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Officials say a terminal at Alaska's main airport has been evacuated over a bomb scare.

The manager of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport says the main terminal was cleared after a male passenger early Sunday made a reference to a bomb in a bag that had been checked into luggage.

John Parrott says travelers were evacuated to another airport terminal, while police and others search the luggage. So far, no explosive has turned up [link to www.fox10tv.com]

He says the man who made the comment and two male companions are being interviewed by authorities. Anchorage was the point of departure for the three, but Parrott didn't have details on their destination.
He says agents with FBI and Transportation Security Administration are taking part in the investigation.
Meanwhile, aircraft have been landing but Parrott says no passengers have been allowed to board any aircraft.

ANCHORAGE — Officials locked down the main terminal at Ted Stevens International Airport early Sunday morning, with airport police telling people as they evacuated the building that there was a "security breach."

Chilled passengers, many of them in summer clothes from their warm departure cities, huddled in doorways to keep warm. Shortly after 1 a.m., airport shuttle busses began taking them to the North Terminal for a respite from the cold, though the shuttles could only carry a dozen people at a time and there were hundreds who had been evacuated....

...After several minutes, the plane did park at the gate. A policeman and a gate agent entered the plane and told passengers they'd have to quickly leave. They wouldn't be allowed to use the rest room at the airport and couldn't pick up their bags. Instead, they were told to quickly follow the agent through a side door that led to the ticketing area and then out to the sidewalk, where hundreds of evacuees were already mingling -- and shivering. The crowd included passengers, airline employees and concession workers...

Wow I work on airport grounds and I have to find out about this online? We weren't even notified or anything. That just doesn't seem right.. There were a lot of lights tho so we had no idea what was going on.

Probably a couple of punks using ghetto slang, where one liked the other's luggage and said "Hey dude - that bag is da bomb!"

After 9/11 da bomb should not be spoken within 5 miles of an airport. I guess not everybody knows that. I bet they're gonna rip him a new one!

Re: Anchorage International Airport, Alaska, is evacuated because of a 'bomb threat
The terminal at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport was cleared as authorities searched through baggage, airport manager John Parrott said.

He said the incident began a little after midnight (1 a.m. PDT) when the man, who was traveling with two male companions, made a reference to a bomb in a bag that had been checked into luggage. John also said that from now on the B-word, and other B-words would be banned from Ted Stevens as with the N-word, the H-word and the A-word. He said that if there was ever was a real bomb or even a nuclear device we don’t want to hear about it in casual conversation. ‘Complete surprise is our policy here at Teddies…!’

Travelers were evacuated to another terminal, while police and others search the luggage. Parrott said that so far, no explosive has turned up.

His punishment for anyone who cares is a $2,000 fine and 10 days in jail at the most.
