Hijacking apparently. What's the scoop?
Dutch security forces surround plane at Schiphol airport after suspected hijacking, Reuters says. More details soon...
I have a friend there right now. My intake of a chinese takeaway tonight is dependent on her arriving in Glasgow, so let's all hope everything's all right.
enjoy your chinese, anyway
you don't like my style. big deal. your pretty dull yourself, bro.
the local chinese market?
A mix up in communications between the pilot and the airport, apparently.
twitter was wrong?!!!!
TOWER: SHHIIIIIT HOSTAGES!!!!!!
when they're pissing about so much the plane needs more plane juice
And now for the news where you are.
so just get off my back okay
Sounds like they're having a mare there today.
Reports of F16s being scrambled would suggest it's airborne. But other reports say it's grounded and surrounded. Then there's the people saying it's just miscommunication.
hashtag shut your fucking site down
It made life so much easier.
but now because it's such a kick bollock scrammble to be the first to put something out it just spreads confusion. Add that to a million twitter gobshites desperate to be gossiping about a situation they know nothing about and it's just a big stupid mess of idiot.
I'm taking this to the things you get grumpy about when you're old thread...
on the Dutch NOS news feed: "If no radio contact with the pilot can be made, it is standard procedure to send some fighter jets to check on the plane. We'll fly next to it to see if the pilot can wave at us. If he ignores us we'll shoot the fucker down."

There on the stair!
