Plane Leaving Fla. Returns To Gate Because Of Note

TAMPA (CBS4)– A Southwest Airlines plane headed for Alabama returned to its gate at Tampa International Airport before takeoff after a suspicious note was found.

The Transportation Security Administration reports that the note was found Friday evening on Flight 1178 to Birmingham, Ala. Passengers were taken back to their departure gate for a security rescreening, but the TSA says nothing was immediately found that raised a concern.

The TSA wasn’t revealing the contents of the note or what made it suspicious.
