TSA Statement on Delta Flight 1747

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

TSA is aware that a suspicious note was discovered this morning in a seat pocket on board Delta flight 1747 from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) as the plane was on approach to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).

The flight landed safely without incident at approximately 9:30 a.m. in Atlanta. Out of an abundance of caution, the flight was met at the gate by TSA and law enforcement. The passengers who discovered the note were interviewed before they continued to their final destination. The flight was swept by a canine team with negative findings.
