COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio airport spokeswoman says a bomb threat led to passengers being evacuated from a plane that landed in Columbus after a flight from Texas.
Angie Tabor with the Columbus Regional Airport Authority says the threat was made before American Airline flight 302 landed in Columbus at about noon Monday on a regularly scheduled flight from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
Tabor says 133 passengers and five crew members were being evacuated from the plane, a Boeing MD80, which has been parked away from the terminal according to airport procedures.
Tabor says other flights are proceeding normally. She says airport police, the Transportation Security Administration, the FBI and the Columbus bomb squad are investigating.
