Bomb Threat Forces Evacuation Of AAL Flight At LaGuardia

Plane Had Just Arrived From Chicago

Some tense moments at New York's LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning, as officials quarantined an arriving flight from Chicago when a bomb threat was reported against the plane.

The Associated Press reports an unidentified person called the New York Police Department, saying he had seen information on the internet claiming there was a bomb onboard American Airlines Flight 382.

"The Port Authority in New York alerted us to a security issue after the plane landed," said American Airlines spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan.

Authorities quickly met the MD82, which arrived at the airport just after 1130 EST, and moved the plane from the gate to an isolated area of the airport.

The 122 persons onboard were evacuated, before personnel moved in with bomb-sniffing dogs. Nothing was found.
