Law enforcement scrambled on a busy long weekend travel day to ensure airplanes were secure after at least 10 threats were phoned in threatening flights.

The first sign of trouble came when NORAD scrambled two F-15 fighter jets over the Atlantic to escort Air France flight 22 to New York’s John F. Kennedy airport after Maryland State Police reported getting a threat about the Paris to New York flight.
