    A bomb threat has forced a US Airways jet to make an emergency landing at Tri-Cities Airport.
    Federal Aviation Administration officials say a number of notes indicating a bomb was on board were found on the plane. The flight orginated in Philadelphia and was headed to Houston with 50 passengers.
    FBI and other law enforcement agencies are on the scene and bomb sniffing dogs are searching the plane. The aircraft is parked in an isolated area away from the terminal.

    This just really scares the bejeebers out of me, especially since Philadelphia is the airport I have to use. My poor Mom is all the way in Oregon and tomorrow is her 92nd birthday. As much as I would dearly love to see her, I'm just too chicken to get on any plane right now. Just the hassle of getting there is more than this old bod can take. Wish me luck that there is no family emergency.

    Oh my nerves are about to get the best of me!! My little sister is a flight attendant for US Air. She's on the smaller commuter planes (which scared the bejeebers out of me yesterday!!). But when I saw Philadelphia and 50 people, my mind just started to wander!
