‘Bomb Threats’: NORAD Scrambled F-16s to Escort Two Flights to Atlanta Airport
ATLANTA — Bomb threats are causing delays at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Channel 2’s Mark Winne learned that NORAD fighter jets escorted two airline flights into the airport due to credible threats of bombs on board.
Sources tell Winne that Delta flight 1156 from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest flight 2492 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were affected by the threats.
FBI officials say the passengers on both flights will be interviewed and searched before they are allowed to leave the area.
This is what it may well look like inside the plane at this time. Last year a video recording of action taken while under a “Bomb Threat” in the cabin of this airliner. Sunwing Airlines Flight 772 Plane Escorted By US F-16s After Passenger Threat July 2014.
