Delta Airlines plane
Mumbai, Nov 5: After an unidentified object was found in the aircraft's cargo-hold, a Mumbai-bound Delta Airlines flight made emergency landing at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on Thursday, Nov 4.

The flight, which was carrying 244 passengers from Amsterdam to Mumbai, was taken to an isolated bay, where all the passengers disembarked before an anti-explosive squad searched the plane and the cargo-hold.

According the airport sources, information about the unidentified object in the palate of the cargo-hold was given by a Delta staffer in Amsterdam.

Fears among the passengers and the flight cue members raised as parcel bombs were found recently in two US-bound planes sent from Yemen.
