An airline official today revealed a Southwest Airlines flight bound for Baltimore was diverted to Nashville after what he described as ‘suspicious behaviour’ by a passenger.
The flight originated in Albuquerque on Saturday morning and landed in Nashville at about 1.10pm CDT. The airline official said that the passenger’s behaviour on the plane wasn’t disruptive, but he declined to elaborate.
Police ordered all the passengers off the plane, sent them back through security and examined the plane before passengers were allowed back on. It took off again about 3.55pm CDT but it could not be confirmed whether the passenger was on board.
The suspicious object was found at Dulles in a freight container at about 4.30pm yesterday and four hours later was still being checked by Virginia state police near one of the airport concourses.
Dulles is about 22 miles west of Washington, where authorities are also on alert on the day of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
At the World Trade site, police are on guard that terrorists could be trying to masquerade as construction workers in order to carry out a plot during today’s service.
