Was the Air France Flight Bombed?

Is it a clue or just a coincidence?

Avion_air_france There was a bomb threat to another Air France flight leaving Buenos Aires just three days before the disappearance of Flight 447.

The story, dated May 27, 2009, is linked at Drudge at this hour:  Bomb threat on Air France Flight

The airport safety delayed an Air France flight this evening before departring for Paris immediately after the company received a bomb threat over the phone at the airport of Ezeiza.

The Federal Police, along the Firemen’s direction and the Airport’s Safety proceeded to inspect the plane, that arrived this morning from the French city and, after a brief stop, it was preparing to return.

The routine procedure lasted approximately one hour and a half and, as sources of the airport reported all the passengers are ok and they were not evacuated.

This story relates to an earlier flight of May 27th, leaving from a different city (Bueonos Aires, Argentina rather than Rio do Janiero, Brazil).  The flight that crashed, Flight 447, left Rio de Janiero Sunday night, May 31st at 7:03 p.m. local time.

The bomb threat involved a different aircraft.  Based on this report, the plane that was lost, an Airbus A330-200, registration number F-GZCP, flew into Bangalore, India on May 26th and May 28th, leaving for Charles de Gaulle, Paris, the same day on both occasions. The aircraft did not report any technical problems, according to air traffic controllers who cleared it for take-off.

What is plausible about the story is that a bombing would explain the lack of any distress communication from the doomed flight.  As an explanation for the disaster, it potentially fits the facts better than the theories of a crash due to lightning or severe storm conditions.  Those theories alone seem inadequate to explain the loss of the flight, according to many seasoned commercial pilots who have discussed the loss of Flight 447 in the media over the past few days.
