Fighter jet escorts flight to BWI after miscommunication
A fighter jet escorted a US Airways
flight to Baltimore-Washington International Airport on
Tuesday after a "miscommunication," officials said.
The military jet was scrambled sent into the air quickly
and escorted Flight 1814 to BWI, its intended destination,
said Maj. Ed Thomas of the North American Aerospace Defense
Command, or NORAD. The Airbus 319 had taken off from
Charlotte, N.C., at 8:07 a.m.
FBI spokesman Barry Maddox initially had said a code
indicating a problem on board was incorrectly entered into the
plane's radar transponder, but later confirmed that he had
Laura Brown, a Transportation Department spokeswoman, declined
to say exactly what happened, describing the incident only as
"a miscommunication between the pilot and the ground."
Passengers were released from the plane shortly after 11 a.m.
They said the plane's crew gave them little information about
the situation.
About 30 minutes after the plane landed, the pilot told
passengers there had been a miscommunication and the crew was
trying to take care of it, said Arthur Ramsey of Greenville,
S.C., who was flying to Baltimore on a business trip.
"The pilot was really nervous. He didn't have a clue you
could hear it in his voice," Ramsey said.
He said police cars surrounded the plane when it landed. Two
FBI agents boarded the plane and went directly to the cockpit,
Ramsey said. Other agents and police officers appeared to be
searching the baggage compartment.
"At first we were all kind of joking about it," Ramsey said.
"But the more cop cars that showed up, we knew it was serious.
A lot goes through your head in a situation like this because
they weren't giving us a lot of information."
Jill Lantz said that after the plane landed, it taxied around
to the back of the terminal.
"Seeing all the cops flipped me out," Lantz said.
US Airways, which is based in Arlington, Va., did not
immediately return calls from The Associated Press seeking
further details.
