FLINT, MICH. - Flint's Bishop International Airport is back to normal operations after it was evacuated Thursday morning over a suspicious bag.
Police shut down the terminal at Bishop after someone found a bag left alone. Authorities took the suspicious lost luggage very seriously and brought in the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad and police dogs.
Emergency crews eventually learned it was just someone's luggage that had accidentally been left behind. A little after 1 p.m., the airport tweeted that the sweep of the airport was complete and they were working to reopen and get back to regular activities.
The evacuation and lock down only delayed some flights out of the airport this morning and afternoon.
Update: The suspicious bag has been cleared and the sweep of the airport is complete. We are now doing the work to reopen the airport.— Bishop Airport (FNT) (@FNTAirport) June 8, 2017
