FAA scolds passenger for using iPad during takeoff (CNN)
ARMONK, N.Y. -- Authorities say two Atlanta-bound planes were cleared for takeoff after a caller advised police of possible explosives on board.
A Westchester County Airport spokesman says a caller told officials he overheard two men talking about explosives aboard a flight to Atlanta on Friday at 7 p.m. As a precaution, police searched two Atlanta-bound planes with bomb-sniffing dogs and re-screened all luggage.
No explosives were found.
The flights were delayed for about two hours and took off at about 9:30 p.m. Police are investigating the phone tip.
