Terrorists are plotting to blow up five passenger planes from European cities as part of a Christmas “spectacular,” according to a new report.
“Everyone is expecting something catastrophic very soon,” a well-placed source told Britain’s Sunday Express.
“We’ve been told that five planes are being targeted in a high-profile hit before Christmas. They’ve been waiting for the big one.”
A source told The Post that London authorities were the first to uncover the threat, which would involve mid-air bombings.
“There is a credible threat that they’re concerned about. They’ve known about it for awhile,’’ a source said.
Airport-security sources told the Express that Islamists planned to smuggle bombs onto the planes in hand luggage.
