Summary Dateline NBC investigates an alleged terrorist plot to blow up a transatlantic airliner in flight using liquid explosives concealed as sports drinks. Some critics challenged the viability of the plot and the new security measures restricting liquids on airplanes. However, Dateline discovered the conspiracy was far more developed than the public had known and that plotters had received direction from individuals linked to al-Qaida's senior leadership.
