OKLAHOMA CITY - A bomb threat was called into the Will Rodgers Airport Saturday against the Boston Celtics charted plane, but so far officials believe it was a hoax.
The plane was not diverted and landed safely at its destination, the Will Rodgers Airport in Oklahoma City. The Celtics are playing the Oklahoma Thunder.
The team was not told until they had exited the plane and gotten onto their bus to go to the hotel.
Police took the plane to the safe area and searched it; the bomb squad also searched the plane, but found nothing.
The FBI and local authorities are investigating.
