Plane lands early after bomb threat

An American Airlines MD-83 jetliner on a flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Boston landed in Nashville Thursday afternoon after a note was found saying a bomb or explosive was on board, a government source told CNN. American Airlines spokesman Tim Wagner said the note was found in one of American Airlines Flight 306’s lavatories by a flight attendant after the plane took off at 1:46 p.m. (2:46 p.m. ET). The 129 passengers, two pilots and three flight attendants were safely evacuated after the plane landed, Wagner said. A Department of Homeland Security official said the note claimed there was a bomb in the cargo hold. That official said no explosives had been been found while the plane was being cleaned after the incident. Full Story
