Passengers on a US Airways flight from Charlotte, N.C., to Denver were briefly held on the plane when it arrived while the aircraft was searched. Two male passengers were taken off the plane by uniformed officers.

An Associated Press reporter who was on Flight 1525 says officers brought a dog onto the plane, and it searched a bathroom at the rear of the jet. Passengers were allowed to disembark normally after the men were taken away. The men weren't handcuffed and left calmly.
