Bomb Threat STOPS Tulsa-Bound Flight
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two planes have been cleared following bomb threats.
Southwest Airlines Flight 811 was stopped before it started taxiing to the runway Tuesday night at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif. It was scheduled to go to Phoenix.
Another Southwest Airlines flight had already arrived in Phoenix from Orange County. It was bound to Tulsa. It had to be taken to an isolation pad so it could be inspected and passengers and luggage could be rescreened. That plane arrived in Tulsa several hours late, around 2:30 this morning.
