MOSCOW, January 26, (Sputnik) — A commercial plane was evacuated and at least two others were diverted Sunday over security concerns, USA Today reports.
“JetBlue bomb set to detonate in 25 minutes,” the tweet said, setting alarm bells ringing.
Shortly after, the JetBlue flight from Long Beach, California and a SkyWest plane from Phoenix were evacuated upon arrival at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport over security concerns, AP reports.
Seattle Airport officials say crews investigating 'security concern' involving JetBlue flight at airport.
The flight disruptions come a day after bomb threats targeted two jets bound for Atlanta, prompting F-16 fighter jets to escort the planes.
