PARIS, June 3 (UPI) -- Aviation authorities said an Air France Buenos Aires-to-Paris flight was was grounded temporarily because of a bomb threat that turned out to be false.

Officials at Buenos Aires' Ezeiza International Airport delayed an Air France flight from the Argentine city to Paris May 27 after the bomb threat was called in, The Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

Federal police and airport safety officers inspected the plane and cleared it for take-off, Argentine media reported. The search lasted about 90 minutes, and passengers were not evacuated from the aircraft.

Air France Flight 447, with 216 passengers and 12 crew members, went off radar about three hours after departing Rio de Janeiro for Paris Monday. French investigators said wreckage presumably from the plane was found in the Atlantic off the northeastern coast of Brazil.
