Passengers Evacuated From Two Planes at JFK Airport After Bomb Threat

Standard

Passengers Walk from the Planes to Nearby Buses

Passengers were evacuated from two Delta Air Lines planes at the John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City after an anonymous caller reported that a pipe bomb was on one of the planes.  The caller mentioned Flight 468, so both planes associated with the flight, one to Tel Aviv and one from San Francisco, were evacuated.

Nearly 400 passengers in all were evacuated from the planes, and taken to heated buses nearby.  The planes were taken to remote locations and searched by police and bomb sniffing dogs, but nothing was found on either plane.  One has officially been deemed “safe” but the other is still being checked more thoroughly.
