CNN.com - Mystery BlackBerry*prompts*airliner diversion - Sep 11, 2006

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal authorities diverted a San Francisco-bound United Airlines jet to Dallas as a precautionary security measure on Monday after finding an unclaimed BlackBerry on board.

Officials had also found and removed an unidentified backpack from the jet before it left Atlanta, said Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Yolanda Clark. She described the jet, United flight 351, as secure and said it was diverted to Dallas "out of an abundance of caution."

"The aircraft is secure," Clark said. She said there was no indication that the hand-held computer was being used as an explosive device or trigger. (Watch how 9/11 factored into the decision to divert the plane -- 2:37)

The flight was diverted on the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. Authorities decided not to send military fighter aircraft to escort the jet, as is routine during an emergency, said Lt. Col. John Cornelio, a spokesman for U.S. Northern Command.

The passengers were to be rescreened by security personnel, according to officials at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which monitors U.S. airspace.
