Thank goodness everyone is okay! A Compass Air flight from Houston, TX was swarmed by police the second it touched down around 8:45 am at LAX in Los Angeles, CA on May 23, because a “non-credible threat” was called into the airport about it being in danger. The plane stopped at a more isolated area of the tarmac, away from the rest of the buildings and planes. You can stream music, ad-free and unlimited, RIGHT HERE!
An armored vehicle, a SWAT team, bomb-sniffing dogs, and dozens of police and fireman searched the plane from top to bottom before escorting all of the 67 passengers and 4 crew off of the “American Eagle” plane and searching them all. Everyone was given the green light to be bused back to the terminal.
Luckily, this story has a happy ending, but that was not the case for EgyptAir flight 804 just days before on May 19. The flight mysteriously exploded mid-air, just a few minutes into Egyptian airspace. Though there’s no official cause for the destruction just yet, many signs point to terrorism, and has left travelers wary of flying.
