Military jets escort plane after passengers pass notes

Military jets escort plane after passengers seen passing notes

Military jets escorted a plane to LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday night after a passenger became alarmed by others passing notes, officials said.

Around 10:45 p.m., about 15 minutes before American Trans Air Flight 204 was due to arrive at LaGuardia from Chicago, a passenger told a flight attendant that seven other passengers were engaged in ''suspicious activity,'' passing notes to each other and changing seats, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Alan Hicks said early Wednesday.
The seven passengers, who are from India, were released early Wednesday, Port Authority officials said. They belonged to a well-known Indian performance group and may have been rehearsing or discussing a performance when they attracted suspicion, their New York host, Chiru Vijanam, told WNBC-TV.
