US Airways Flight Searched In Colo., 2 Men Removed
DENVER (AP) ― Passengers on a US Airways flight from Charlotte, N.C., to Denver were briefly held on the plane upon arrival while the aircraft was searched. Two male passengers were taken off the plane by uniformed officers.
An Associated Press reporter who was on Flight 1525 Tuesday says officers brought a dog onto the plane, and it searched a bathroom at the rear of the jet. Passengers were allowed to disembark normally after the men were taken away. They weren't handcuffed and left calmly.
The Transportation Security Administration says before the plane landed, it was notified of a passenger "who raised concerns with the flight crew." The TSA says authorities met the flight and the passenger was being questioned.
It's not clear why the other person was also removed.
The flight originated early Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
