United Airlines flight diverted to Toronto

A United Airlines flight was diverted to Toronto late Monday after the plane's communication system began to malfunction, an airline official said.

Flight 940 never lost contact with air traffic control, according to United spokesman Rahsaan Johnson. The extent of the problem with the communication system wasn't immediately clear, but was bad enough the captain asked to divert, he said.

    I bet the turdball would have a better record in the AFC north than the browns.

    @Wow...everything they told you about us is true. Welcome aboard. Care for a frozen turdball ? Their free. But we are out of nuts. FOX bought out the entire national supply. We have some twinkies though.

    has anyone ever noticed that the ending of van helsing is a combonation of the wizard of oz and the lion king? you start with the camera panning left over some wheat fields, then talking heads in the sky. seeings it was the begining was wizard of oz, and the middle was lion king, I was expecting a third act, but then I realize that's the last part of the plot of inception, and the most meaning ful part as well. the credits. there's something for the conspiracy nuts to wet themselves over. oh yeah, and paul is dead. lol.
