A US Airways plane that landed in Philadelphia this afternoon after an unfounded threat was made has been searched by police, according to NBC Philadelphia.
After landing, the plane was reportedly taken to a remote area and inspected by bomb-sniffing dogs, and passengers and luggage were screened.
Police told NBC that the threat, which is unsubstantiated, was called in by an unknown male. NBC says the type of threat is still unspecified, though Ireland’s Independent says it’s a bomb threat.
US Airways Flight 777 was scheduled to land at Philadelphia International Airport at 1:45PM.
Inbound flights at the airport were delayed, according to NBC.
