Fighter Jets Escort Planes Targeted by Bomb Threat VIA TWITTER
Two airplanes have been evacuated and searched at Atlanta airport due to a bomb threat that was sent via Twitter of all things.
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.
The Atlanta airport told Winne that Delta flight 1156 from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest flight 2492 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were affected by the threats.
Here are the tweets:
Law enforcement is currently assessing the claim:
Let’s hope these are empty threats.
This is really weird.
Obviously he’s not dumb enough to post his real address, so what is this?
