A bomb on board a U.S. Christmas Day flight would have failed to bring the plane down even if it had been detonated successfully, a new test explosion suggests.

A controlled blast on a Boeing 747, using the same explosives that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is accused of smuggling on board, failed to burst the fuselage.

It means, had the bomb exploded on December 25, Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit would have successfully landed.


However, experts said the alleged Islamist terrorist and the passenger next to him would have died, while other passengers would have suffered ruptured ear drums.

Mr Abdulmutallab, 23, who is accused of sewing explosives into his underpants and using a syringe to detonate it, denies attempting to murder 289 people.

The controlled experiment was carried out for the BBC Two documentary How safe are our Skies? Detroit Flight 253.
