Flight lands in Maine over odd passenger behavior
Paris-to-North Carolina US Airways flight diverted to Maine because of odd passenger behavior
By The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) ' An official says US Airways Flight 787 from Paris to Charlotte, N.C., has been diverted to Maine because a French passenger exhibited suspicious behavior.

The official briefed on the investigation says the woman is in custody and the flight has been cleared to continue. The woman is a French citizen who was born in Cameroon.

Another official says the passenger appeared to be mentally unstable and that she announced that she had a surgically implanted device. Both sources spoke on condition of anonymity because it involved sensitive law enforcement information.



A US Airways spokesman says the Boeing 767 with 179 passengers and nine crew members landed around noon Tuesday at Bangor International Airport.

Two F-15 fighters were scrambled to escort the jetliner to the ground.
