On edge much, fellow Americans?
CINCINNATI -- Fighter jets escorted a flight from France part of the way into the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport Tuesday afternoon.
The two F-16 fighter jets were called off before Delta flight 043 landed. It left Paris at 11:20 a.m. and landed just before 4 p.m., WLWT Eyewitness News 5 reported.
According to reports, a woman was removed from the flight before it took off from Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport because she had a coat with wires protruding from it.
The coat turned out to be a motorcycle jacket that works like an electric blanket, and the woman was booked onto a later flight, WLWT reported.
Officials were notified after the woman was removed "out of an abundance of caution," a U.S. official said. The officials said several flights have been escorted in recent months as a precaution.
The plane was held in an area away from the terminal when it landed, and passengers are being re-screened at this hour as a precaution, WLWT reported.
Dozens of spectators gathered at a flight-viewing area near the airport perimeter to see the plane landing. Many left the area before the plane landed.
Passengers arriving at the airport encountered delays of up to 30 minutes while security personnel worked to deal with the flight, WLWT reported.
