The FBI says a woman who wanted to keep her mother and brother from flying to New York the day before the September 11th anniversary called in a bomb threat to Southwest Airlines. There was no bomb, but the threat led authorities in Tucson, Arizona to remove luggage from a flight and conduct a search. The FBI says the unidentified woman from Lake Ronkonkoma, New York called police at the Tucson airport twice to say she overheard details of a bomb plot that targeted Southwest flight 2475. She made a court appearance on Tuesday in Central Islip, New York.
