KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 7 (UPI) -- The bomb squad met a plane flying into Kansas City, Mo., after a passenger was overheard making a comment about explosives.

No bomb was discovered on American Airlines Flight 4222, KMBC-TV reported Friday.

The incident began as the plane approached Kansas City from Chicago after someone overheard a passenger asking "What if there were a bomb in my suitcase," Kansas City Police said.

The plane parked in a remote part of the airport after landing around 10 p.m. Thursday night. Once passengers left the plane, traveling by bus to a terminal, officers from the bomb and arson squads examined baggage and the aircraft, finding nothing.
