Delta Flight Diverted Over New Mexico Due To ‘Security Threat’

I am still trying to figure out why the Government is so tight lipped about what happened on this flight.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An airport spokesman says a Delta Air Lines flight from Detroit to San Diego that was diverted to Albuquerque, N.M. on Sunday has been cleared to take off again after authorities investigated a “potential security threat.”

Albuquerque International Sunport spokesman Daniel Jiron says the 107 passengers aboard the flight were interviewed, as was the crew. He says passengers will be allowed to continue their trip.

Jiron has declined to specify what the nature of the potential threat was. FBI spokesman Frank Fisher also declined to clarify.

The flight was diverted at 10 a.m. MDT. Jiron says it was cleared to fly again around 12:30 p.m. but doesn’t know what time the plane would take off.
