Airport Breach description
Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, Bentonville A screener lost track of a bag identified as a possible threat. The screener examined the bag in the X-ray machine and decided to give it a second look. But by the time the employee tried to retrieve it, the passenger who sent it through security had already taken it. The terminal was searched, but the bad was never located. About 250 people were evacuated, including 27 who already had boarded their flight. The flight was delayed about 25 minutes. [12/19/2002]
