Associated press has reported that a United Airlines flight from Newark to Geneva has been redirected to Logan International Airport in Boston. Authorities say that one of the plan’s attendants found a suspicious item onboard in an unoccupied seat.
The item found is believed to be a camera.
A spokesman for the flight, which landed shortly after 9:10 p.m. , said that there was no indication that the camera posed a threat, however, the crew requested that it be removed.
No word yet as to when the Boeing 767, carrying 157 passengers will resume its trip to Geneva, however, “United” spokesman, Rahsaan Johnson says that the airline was working hard to minimize the delay.
The airliner is currently conducting a sweep of the aircraft. State Police spokesman, David Procopio said that bomb technicians were planning to examine the camera once the passengers came off the aircraft.
