SEATTLE, WA (MorichesDaily) — NORAD scrambled two Oregon F-15 fighter jets early Thursday evening to escort an Alaska Airlines flight from Kona, Hawaii, to Sea-Tac Airport that was potentially the target of a hijacking.

FBI officials said the Honolulu field office received a call suggesting there was a threat to Alaska Air Flight 819 and that an individual on-board was going to hijack the plane, according to sources.

After the flight landed in Seattle, FBI agents and Port of Seattle police escorted a man off the plane and detained him for questioning.

One person was taken into custody and is being questioned by the FBI, the representative said.

According to that spokesperson, the airline was notified that law enforcement was interested in the passenger.

The passenger exhibited no unusual behavior during the flight and was asleep for much of it, the airline spokesperson said.

NORAD confirmed the F-15s were scrambled from the Oregon Air National Guard base in Portland but said it couldn’t comment while the planes were in the air.

FBI officials said there was no danger at Sea-Tac Airport either.
