Bomb threat forces Northwest flight to Seattle
07/26/2007
A man who had missed his flight said there was a bomb aboard the plane, forcing it to return to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport even though authorities did not believe the threat was legitimate, an airport spokeswoman said. "The plane was brought back, erring on the side of caution, after he made that threatening statement," Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Jennifer Peppin said. Airport police were questioning a man who told a gate agent on Wednesday that there was a bomb on Northwest Airlines Flight 980 shortly after the plane left Seattle for Memphis around 12:33 p.m., airport spokeswoman Terri-Ann Betancourt said.
