OMAHA -- An airplane bomb scare forced a Southwest Airlines flight en route from Las Vegas to Connecticut to make an emergency landing in Omaha.
A passenger who'd missed the flight allegedly said something about a bag and a bomb aboard Southwest Flight 1108 Saturday night, Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Christi Day told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Officials didn't immediate release further details about the suspect.
No explosives were found aboard the plane. The flight's 137 passengers were delayed three hours before resuming travel to Hartford, Conn.
