    UPS Planes in New Jersey, Philadelphia Probed After Suspicious Items Found - Bloomberg

    United Parcel Service Inc. said the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is inspecting possible suspicious packages on three jets that flew in from Europe.

    A Boeing Co. 767 from Paris and an MD-11 from Cologne, Germany, both landed safely in Philadelphia, and items on board are being investigated, Mike Mangeot, a spokesman for Atlanta- based UPS, said today in a telephone interview. The third plane is a 767 that arrived at New Jersey’s Newark airport from East Midlands, U.K., Mangeot said.

    The FBI and the Transportation Security Administration haven’t given UPS further details about the nature of the packages or what is under investigation, Mangeot said. He said he wasn’t aware of any visible signs of smoke or fire from the packages or on the planes.
