As former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan sat aboard his Denver-to-Los Angeles flight Wednesday waiting to take off, authorities boarded the plane and escorted seven suspicious-looking men off of it before bomb-sniffing dogs were sent on to make sure it was safe.
As it turns out, the FBI was alerted to what passengers said were seven "Middle Eastern-looking" men that boarded United Flight 227 together, yet sat in separate seats throughout the plane. The men attempted to switch seats with other passengers and to move luggage around as the plane was being pushed back.
