I just got the CNN message on my phone and I admit, I laughed a little after going WTF!?
MSNBC is saying now it was an attempted hijacking with firecrackers. LOL! Lets see how long they go with that story before retracting it.

Fireworks Set Off Aboard Delta Flight

(Dec. 25) -- A Delta Airlines official says a passenger aboard a plane at Detroit Metropolitan Airport set off firecrackers aboard the plane, causing a commotion and some minor injuries.

Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott says Delta Flight 253, an Airbus 330 carrying 278 passengers, was arriving in Detroit from Amsterdam when the incident took place Friday afternoon.

Elliott says the passenger was immediately subdued. She had no details on injuries.

An FBI spokeswoman in Detroit says the incident is being investigated.
Most recent report on the news... for what it's worth... the passenger was a Nigerian passenger and tried to "light a powdery substance" just prior to landing.
And they got through security with illegal explosives how?


I think the real question should be "is there any surprise that they got through security with illegal explosives?"
