Bomb threat against 2 planes at Atlanta’s main airport
Police bomb and dog teams searched two planes at Atlanta’s main airport after authorities received bomb threats made online.
The threats Saturday targeted Southwest Airlines Flight 2492, which arrived from Milwaukee, and Delta Air Lines Flight 1156, which arrived from Portland, Oregon.
A spokesman for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Reese McCranie, said both flights arrived safely.
NORAD spokesman Preston Schlachter said the military dispatched two F-16 fighter jets to shadow the planes until they arrived at the airport. Schlachter said the threats were made through Twitter, an online social media network.
