I had my scanner going but I can't get a clear channel to hear what is going on at the Minneapolis/St Paul Intl Airport.
anyone heard anything?  Breaking news?
from what I did get they have 2 runways shut down now for over and hour and emptied a plane and contents

It will be on local FOX news here at 9:00 pm,
They evacuated a plane to do a hand search, and are going thru the baggage by hand. I live 40 miles north so I can't hear it very well.

Richfield police and fire
Bloomington police fire and swat
MN Nat Guard

I'm an airline mechanic. I loved the look on the flight attendants face the other day when she saw a small strange electronic device on the wall of the galley. She got worried and asked me to take a look at it. Before I could respond the Capt. came out of the cockpit and unpluged his portable AA battery charger from the 110 galley outlet. [rolleyes]
