More than 100 passengers on board a Delta Airlines plane will be screened by the FBI after the arriving flight was forced to land in a remote corner of Denver International Airport due to a threatening note.

The plane, Flight 1500 arriving from Detroit, had 151 passengers on board. It landed at DIA at about 4:40 p.m.

Aaron Baratz, a passenger, told The Denver Post via Twitter that the passengers were being taken from the area by bus. They were not allowed to open overhead compartments and retrieve any bags.
