DENVER, Colo.--- Officials say a Delta Air Lines plane on a flight from Detroit to Denver reported an unspecified potential security threat and taxied to a remote area after landing safely at Denver International Airport.
Airport spokeswoman Stacey Stegman said Friday that passengers on the flight were taken to another location by bus. Police are searching the plane, and it is unclear what, if anything, they have found.
Stegman had no other information about the potential threat or how it was reported.
Passenger Jon Lamp spoke to NewCenter16 from the tarmac shortly before 11 p.m.
Lamp said he and the other passengers had been sequestered on the tarmac for more than 3 hours as authorities checked the plane.
"Apparently about 30 minutes prior to landing a steward on the plane found a note regarding a bomb threat," Lamp said in a phone interview. "They mentioned that we were going to land away from the gate, away from the concourse... We evacuated the plane and authorities went in the plane and tried to sweep it they still haven't found anything."
The airport referred questions to the FBI. An FBI spokesman didn't immediately respond to an email.
