Police: ‘Security Incident’ On Plane At Logan Not Related To Monday’s Bombing

BOSTON (CBS) – State Police say a security incident reported on a US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Boston is not related to Monday’s bombings.

The FAA said Tuesday there had been some type of security incident on the plane.

US Airways released a statement Tuesday afternoon saying the TSA requested that upon landing in Boston, they wanted to inspect a bag on board. The plane was carrying 62 passengers.

“Passengers are safely inside the terminal and the aircraft was cleared and moved to the terminal,” a US Airways spokesperson said.

State Police spokesperson David Procopio said there was a piece of luggage on the plane that had not been checked in Philadelphia that security wanted to look at.

Procopio said the incident is not related to Monday’s explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line.

Once on the ground in Logan, luggage was taken from the plane and lined up on the runway for inspection.
