A suspicious note with the words “Bomb to Toronto” has led to an evacuation on a Turkish Airlines plane in Istanbul, Turkey.
The flight was scheduled to travel to Pearson International Airport, but the note was found on the wall in the bathroom prior to take off, halting flight TK-17 from leaving Ataturk International Airport Saturday morning.
Officials say, the plane was taken back to its parking spot and evacuated immediately after that, but there was nothing else on the plane that was found to be suspicious. Also, all passengers were able to pass through the security check successfully without any issues.
Turkish Airlines says another plane has been sent to the airport in order to resume the flight back to Toronto.
