According to local news 3 flight in FWA where grounded due to a "threat" of some sort, apparently non-terrorism. It appears as though from the destination that the flights had that they where DL (CVG), NW (DTW), and AA/TZ/UA (all they said was Chicago). Does anyone have any other information on this?

Syncmaster, the grounded flights were reported in the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette Sunday morning, but no one seems to want to say what the threat was. All they confirm was that it was not terrorist-related and mentioned only outbound flights were affected. No inbound were delayed nor cancelled. But both the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne FBI offices said the threats were 'unfounded'. So I guess nothing ever became of it. I suspect there will be a follow-up article soon saying exactly what the threat was supposed to be. I'll keep an eye out for you. BTW, the grounded Chicago flight was indeed ATA.

Update: Apparently two people were overheard in the terminal discussing a bomb in a plane about to depart. The planes were searched and pax moved to a secure area. No mention of what happened to the people having the discussion.
