A bomb on board an airliner has an altitude-sensitive trigger. Unless a ransom is paid, it will explode when the plane descends to land.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Denver. Altitude 5,300 feet above sea level... And thanks be to God for every foot of it.
When the Denver Fire Department truck pulls alongside he rear fuselage the vertical stabilizer appears to belong to a DC 6 or 7C v- a propeller driven airliner. Also, airport equipment should have been used instead of city, since they would be able to lay down foam or other aircraft related substances.
