The first is not correct. It was the crew who became suspicious, not the woman.
In #2, I would change "became" to "was" and "planning" to "planting".

I am a bit confused about the word suspicious. Please read the background to see what I have a problem with.
Background: a woman rushed to the exit, she rushed off a plane, but she was stopped by the cabin crew because she was suspicious, her behaviour was suspicious.
1. By rushing to the exit she became suspicious of planting a bomb and stopped by the cabin crew.
Is the verb suspicious used correctly here? Or maybe I should say:
2. By rushing to the exit she became suspected of planning a bomb and stopped by the cabin crew.
Are both correct?
Thanks for clarifying. So now we could say:
She rushed off the plane. The cabin crew became suspicious of her behaviour, and as a result she was suspected of planting a bomb.
So I was right to be suspicious of the two tricky expressions. On the other hand, I have never been suspected of anything wrong :)
What do you mean? Why not? It was suspicious when she rushed off the plane. The airport security was alarmed by a stewardess. She was questioned by the police and suspected of planting a bomb.
Be warned though that it is perfectly possible to say that the woman on the plane looked suspicious. That means she looked like she was doing something wrong/illegal.
She looked suspicious which made the crew suspicious.
Note that that's not a good combination words for the same reason Mike gave about "suspected/suspicious".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Just to underline a point: 'suspicious' can be applied to both the suspect and person who suspects them. In that sense, it can be ambiguous.
"The policeman saw a man acting suspiciously, and he became suspicious." It's not that being suspicious is contagious; it's that it has two complementary meanings.
I am not a teacher.
In fact, when someone becomes suspicious they don't become suspicious themselves, they become suspicous of someone or something else.
