Astonishingly, just as the search for the missing Malaysian airliner begins to fade, another potential terror threat has taken place over the skies of the U.S.

DENVER, Co. (INTELLIHUB) — The F.B.I. took 151 passengers and 6 crew members aboard a Delta flight 1500, bound from Detroit to Denver, into custody, later bussing them to a “remote location” of the Denver Airport complex after a potential security threat was discovered mid-flight, reported Ana Cabrera, a CNN correspondent.
Sources told CALL7 Investigator John Ferrugia a flight attendant found a note in a rear galley of the plane threatening a bomb was onboard.
Flight 1500 landed safely at 4:39 MT and the pilot was directed to taxi the plane to a remote location of DIA where it was met by law enforcement and fire crews. A K9 team searched the plane, passengers and bags, but no bomb was turned up.
After the plane landed, passenger Tone Sevy tweeted that passengers could not take anything off the plane or from overhead bins. He added the Delta pilots were “low key [and] put us down fast a couple miles” from the airport.
