LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities searched a JetBlue aircraft Thursday following reports that an unauthorized person dressed as a pilot might have tried to board the plane at Los Angeles International Airport.
A separate search began for the person after airport police received a call from an LAX employee around 6 a.m., Officer Rob Pedregon said.
The worker said the person was on the passenger boarding bridge connected to Flight 24 to New York. No travelers were onboard at the time.
"It's possible the person was actually a pilot," Pedregon said. "We're just being extra careful."
The aircraft was towed as a precaution from Terminal 3 to a remote area of the airfield. Police searched the plane and terminal.
Flight 24 was delayed and all passengers and luggage were sent back through security screening, JetBlue spokesman Philip Stewart said.
