A United airlines flight from Denver to San Francisco has been diverted to Salt Lake City because of a bomb threat.
Salt Lake City Superintendent of Airport Operations Dave Korzep says the FBI and airport police are on scene searching the plane.
Korzep says the 193 passengers and six crew remain on board United Flight 741 and that there are buses waiting to transport passengers to the terminal when the all-clear is given.
Korzep had no details on the threat. The FBI in Salt Lake City said it couldn't confirm anything. A United spokesperson says the flight was diverted as a precaution. The flight originated in Denver.
