A Turkish Airlines flight was diverted from destination by a "bomb on board" alert that turned out to be a false alarm. 

The flight from Nairobi to Istanbul made an emergency landing in Khartoum, Sudan, after passengers detected a wifi network titled "bomb on board." 

Seriously people?

The flight continued after inspectors found no security risks.

Turkish airlines has stated that the suspicious wifi network someone created, and named, onboard the aircraft. 

Immediately word got out.









Sadly this isn't the first time someone thought this gag would fly. The guilty party is still unnamed but his shame and stupidity is most definitely public.

In this day and age, it's always better to play it safe.. or SMART!
