Plane Called Back to Terminal over Explosives Warning

A US Airways flight to Dallas was called back to Philadelphia on Thursday morning and surrounded by police after law enforcement officials received an anonymous tip that liquid explosives were on board, an FBI spokesman said.

Special Agent Frank Burton said it wasn't immediately clear if the tip that led to the recall of Flight 1267 involved a specific person or a specific flight.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Dave Castelveter said the airplane returned "due to a report of a suspicious item on board."
