DENVER -- A Delta Air Lines flight from Detroit to Denver International Airport was taxied to a remote area at the airport after landing Friday afternoon because of a potential security threat, officials said.

FBI spokesman Dave Joly said passengers, their luggage and the aircraft were being screened. Passengers were later released to claim their luggage and continue travel plans.

The FBI has not released the exact nature of the threat.

A passenger on board Delta Flight 1500 told KUSA that passengers were placed on a bus and taken to the terminal. Passengers were not allowed to retrieve items from the overhead bin when they deplaned, according to the passenger.

The plane was carrying 151 passengers and six crew members.
