A plane about to take off from Baltimore-Washington International Airport was grounded and the passengers evacuated after suspicious activity was reported by a passenger.
A Muslim appearing female passenger was reported to the crew by another passenger, for watching what appeared to be an Islamic state video.
Three men and a woman were removed from the Spirit Airlines plane, which was about to take off to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, when a female passenger was seen watching a video that another passenger deemed “suspicious.”
“A passenger alerted a flight attendant of a passenger engaged in suspicious activity on board,” a source told Reuters. The plane had not yet taken off, and returned to the gate. All passengers were evacuated.”
First Sergeant Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority police, told Reuters that one of the four travellers were questioned and released.
