Two planes were searched at JFK Airport after a telephone threat was received early Monday, officials said.
An anonymous call was made to the Port Authority Monday morning by a man claiming that terrorists with explosives were hidden in the wheel wells of two incoming flights, ABC News reported. The two flights were American Airlines Flight 524 and FinAir Flight 55.
The two planes landed at roughly 3:45 p.m. and were immediately moved to a safe area where FBI and Air Marshals could investigate, CBS News reported. Crew members were interviewed and the planes were searched.
No terrorists and no explosives were found on the planes, officials said, and the flights were cleared around 4:40 p.m.
