Continental Flight Diverted Over Threatening Message

A flight from Houston to Washington, D.C., was diverted to an airport in North Carolina earlier today after what is being described as a threatening message was discovered on the jet’s bathroom mirror.

According to the TSA, Continental ExpressJet flight 3006 was supposed to have landed at Washington Dulles International Airport but instead touched down at the Piedmont Triangle International Airport outside of Greensboro, NC, “out of an abundance of caution” following the discover of the message.

After landing in Greensboro, the Embraer 145 commuter jet, which seats about 50, taxied to a remote area of the airport where it was met by the authorities.
