Hosted by

F-15 fighter jets escorted United Flight 923 into Boston's Logan Airport today. It took off from London and had been headed for Washington, DC until it was diverted because of a disturbance aboard the plane. Peter Howe, aviation reporter for the Boston Globe, says the incident illustrates the tension surrounding airline security as the plot to blow up flights from Britain to the US continues to unfold.
