VANCOUVER, B.C.—

A Korean Air 777 airliner with 149 people on board was forced to make an emergency landing Tuesday at a military airbase on Vancouver Island after the airline received its second bomb threat in two days, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said.

Korean Air flight 72 had taken off from Vancouver International Airport headed for Seoul, South Korea, at 2:30 p.m. PT Tuesday, the CBC said. The crew turned back off the north coast of B.C. after a bomb threat was made in a telephone call to the airline’s Los Angeles office, a Korean Air spokesman told CBC News.
