A “security concern” forced a Delta flight to Orlando to make an unscheduled landing at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The diverted flight was prompted by a tweet originating from the twitter account @AllahuAhkbar911 to @DeltaAssist. The message read:
WE HAVE PLANTED EXPLOSIVES ON DELTA FLIGHT #1061 FROM LA TO ORLANDO, WE ARE ISIS, WE ARE HERE, YOU WONT BE.
Twitter reports that the account has been suspended.
Delta flight 1061, which originated from Los Angeles, safely touched down at 4:25 p.m., according to CBS Dallas-Fort Worth. The 179 passengers and eight crew members disembarked and were led to a safe location, while the airport’s Department of Public Safety officers thoroughly inspected the aircraft. They found nothing to cause alarm.
“Everybody was pretty calm,” passenger Judy told the station, “but there’s that thought in your head: ‘Is this really real or is it not?’”
Stated differently, was it all a hoax, or was it a dry run?
Watch the televised report above, via CBS.
