Just spoke with my father, returning home via PHX on HP. His CRJ from MFR was returned to Medford after 30 minutes, the pilot said PHX was closed due to a bomb threat on a UPS plane, but I can't get any info online.

Anyone else heard?

CNN says a UPS plane was being searched, not a lot of details.

I am at Arizona State University right now which is just south of the departure and arrival path. Since 8AM today this traffic has been steady as always. I was last outside 10 minutes ago and we there was still normal activity. I wonder what the deal is!

CNN is now reporting that passenger flights have been unaffected. Appearently, the threat occured last night, so it should affect anything today.

The pilot may have been mistaken on the reason for his turn-around. Also, the news report is the only one I could find, so it could be wrong.
