Terror in the Aussie skies 

Australia experiences its first major airline scare, as an United Airlines Flight 840 from Sydney to Los Angeles turns back hour and a half into its flight after a standard issue sick bag is discovered in one of the toilets with the word "BOB" scrawled on it.

"BOB" most commonly can stand for "bomb on board." It can also stand for
"best on board", according to Flight Attendants' Association of Australia international division secretary Michael Mitjatov, "referring to the most attractive male or female passenger" on the flight.

As it transpired, there was no bomb onboard. We don't know whether there was a particularly good looking person onboard either.
