(CNN)Here's a look at the 2006 terrorist plot to blow up US-bound flights that originated in the United Kingdom.
It is believed that the terrorists were planning to carry peroxide-based explosives in liquid or gel/lotion form in carry-on luggage. The explosives would be hidden in common items such as toothpaste or shampoo bottles. Separately, the explosives triggers would be hidden in an iPod or cell phone. Once on board, the plotters would combine the two and detonate a bomb.
August 10, 2006 - British police announce the arrests of 24 people in the UK who allegedly were planning to blow up US-bound airliners. The plan was to smuggle liquid explosives on to as many as 10 jetliners bound for airports in New York, Washington, and California.
