MOSCOW, July 5 /TASS/. A passenger who promised to explode a bomb on board of a plane made a bad joke, the Vnukovo airport official spokesman told TASS.
"A young man, Illarionov Pyotr, born 1987, said he had a bomb when he was boarding a plane together with his wife and child. He was questioned. The man said it was his first flight and that he had made a bad joke," the Vnukovo spokesman said.
