CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Chopper 9 Skyzoom was there when law enforcement met US Airways flight 2045 Monday on the ground in Charlotte.The plane was taken to a remote location where passengers were told to get off and get on buses."We were told not to panic and be patient with the process," said passenger Tom Hardiman."I was a happy man when they got us off the plane and in the buses," said passenger Chris Earol.FBI investigators then went on board to look into a suspicious note.They have not said what it was about, but that whatever was in it, it caused enough concern from the flight crew to call for help."They didn't know what it was exactly but he said they were checking the planes to see if there were any bombs on it or anything like that," said Cole Mackie, a friend of a passenger.Mackie's friend was among the 124 passengers on board.He waited on the ground for him.Eyewitness News found out that everyone made it off of the plane safely.Passengers told Eyewitness News some people in two center rows were asked to speak with investigators, but they did not see anyone be detained.After about an hour of holding passengers on a bus, the crew took them back to the gate.The investigation continues at this time.
