A plane bound for Newark was delayed in North Carolina with passengers stuck on the tarmac. Was it because of construction at Newark or because of a dead body?
It happened on a US Airways flight 1972 on Sept. 11. Passenger Chris Christi says he was already jittery flying on the anniversary of the terror attacks.
He said after sitting on the runway for more than an hour, the pilot got on the intercom to address the passengers.
"It wasn't your typical announcement," Christi says. "It started with 'ladies and gentlemen, we've received information from our company on human remains' so instantly, you heard a collective gasp on the plane."
Apparently, the remains that were on the plane were not supposed to be going to Newark Liberty International, the destination of the flight.
Christi says the pilot announced that the body was supposed to be going to St. Louis and the flight would be delayed as crews moved the remains.
US Airways issued a statement to Fox 5 News saying the delay was due to an air traffic control delay in Newark and said nothing about any mix up with human remains on the plane. The airline says the flight was only delayed for one hour.
