A bomb squad and the FBI have been called to Los Angeles International Airport after a threat was made about an incoming aircraft.
Compass Airlines Flight 5931, carrying 67 passengers and four crew, was traveling from Houston to LAX when the threat was called in to the Transportation Security Administration.
An armed tactical unit, dozens of police officers and firemen, along with multiple emergency vehicles rushed to meet the plane as it landed at around 8.30am Pacific Time before it was examined.
A black armored vehicle was seen approaching the plane before the tactical unit began carrying out a sweep for devices stowed on board.
Images from the scene showed officers checking the wheel wells of the aircraft before making their way on board with a bomb-sniffing dog at around 9.30am.
Around half an hour later fire crews approached the aircraft in order to help the passengers and crew members off.
Each of them was searched before boarding a bus back to the terminal building.
It is not clear if any device was found on board the plane, and the exact details of the threat were not immediately available.
Earlier in the day police were called to George Bush Intercontinental Airport to another bomb threat about a different aircraft.
Officers investigated a possible bomb threat against a Delta Air Lines plane, a police spokesman said, but no device was found on the plane.
