Military jets escorted an American Airlines plane to a safe landing at New York City's JFK Airport on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
NBC LA reports that the two F-16 fighter jets were called into action after three passengers refused to come out of a bathroom on a flight originating in Los Angeles.
There was initially some confusion as to whether the jets had been called, with NBC New York noting that a security official first said fighter jets had been launched and then another security official said they had been set to launch.
A law enforcement official told the AP that the incident isn't thought to be terrorism.
