The NW253 saga comes to something of an end, with the perp in custody, and several of his associates also being held and questioned. Details of the event here and here.
As Boris Badenov says, "I love story weeth happy eending!".
The passengers swarmed the wannabe shoe bomber and subdued him for the authorities on arrival. Frankly I thing the only proper ending is the pilot calling the destination airport to request a "wet cleanup on aisle one".
Congratulations and Merry Christmas to the passengers, and here's hoping Abdul the Bul-Bul gets plenty of swimming lessons at Gitmo.
