A father and son got kicked off an Orlando-bound flight on Air Canada Tuesday night after another passenger saw them watching video of the 9/11 terror attacks, according to the Toronto Sun.

The boy was watching a video on his iPod of the planes hitting the World Trade Center just before take off (where they would enter U.S. airspace).

"Other passengers and our crew became concerned," Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick told the Sun. "The passengers were deplaned and following an investigation allowed to travel (Wednesday) morning.

An Air Canada employee said that the father tried to cover up the video when a flight attendant went to talk to him. "It made everyone nervous," the employee said.
