An Air France flight headed to Chicago was diverted to Ireland two hours after takeoff after the discovery of a “suspicious” cell phone that didn’t belong to anyone onboard.
Flight AF136, which departed from the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris was cleared to land at Ireland’s Shannon Airport after the flight crew informed air traffic controllers of the cell phone.
The passenger who discovered the phone found it stuck in the seat. Crew members tried to locate the owner of the phone before determining that it did not belong to any of the passengers, according to the Irish Times. After landing, the phone was handed over to the police for inspection. The plane then continued on to Chicago. Authorities now believe the phone may have been left by a passenger on the plane’s previous flight.
