Bomb threats are causing delays at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Channel 2's Mark Winne learned that NORAD fighter jets escorted two airline flights into the airport due to credible threats of bombs on board.

Sources tell Winne that Delta flight 1156 from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest flight 2492 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were affected by the threats.

FBI officials say the passengers on both flights will be interviewed and searched before they are allowed to leave the area.



Given the Paris incidents which subsequently raised alert levels at government buildings and for local law enforcements nationwide...this seems hinky. Is NORAD typically called in on threats like this? Occasionally we hear about notes found, etc..but not typically NORAD escorting a plane. Could a terrorist organization be testing the system?

Two up north last week, and now these two.

NORAD flying out of where I wonder.


Southwest Airlines released a statement shortly after 3:30 p.m. regarding the threats:

"Due a security situation, the aircraft operating Flight 2492 was taken to a remote area of the airport where Customers and the aircraft are being rescreened. Our number one priority is the Safety of our Customers and People. We cannot comment on the nature of the security situation." 11Alive

They're just letting people walk off with their bags. I guess the dogs are checking them?

You'd be shocked at some of the reasons behind airport bomb threats.

Let's hope so! But, really, it seems like a dog and pony show. Maybe someone just wants to see how this will play out in prep for something else?

Just more people being stupid. We used to have people make comments about bombs while standing in the checkpoint.

Probably. Isn't social media grand?


CNN: The F-16 fighter jets were from McEntire Joint National Guard Base in South Carolina and returned to the base after the planes landed.

People think that just because they're online they can get away with anything. Little do they realize that when the FBI breaks their door down they're facing huge fines and jail time.

I'd hate to be at (or even near) that guys house right now.

He gave an address on his twitter and everything.

After scanning through kingzortc's twit.
IMHO Ithingk he / them are trying to swat someone, all he follows are gamers.

A gamer in trouble now.

I thought the tweets from Delta with the JK were odd. Must have been the person's initials, but still...

The articles I open do not give times. Is that an optional part of a good report now? Sites don't seem to time stamp the articles either.

Guess it's a downfall of the republish someone article method.
