Britain's Royal Air Force (RAF) on June 15 escorted an Egyptair plane bound for New York to a Scottish airport following an onboard incident, the Ministry of Defence said. The Boeing 777 was travelling between Cairo and New York when a passenger alerted plane crew that she had found a note reading 'I'll set this plane on fire' in the toilet. The message was scrawled in pencil on a napkin and was found by BBC New York producer Nada Tawfik. AFP PHOTO / ANDY BUCHANAN (Photo credit should read Andy Buchanan/AFP/Getty Images)
