(NEW YORK) — A suspicious passenger caused an international flight bound for North Carolina to make an unscheduled stop in Maine.

US Airways flight 787 from Paris to Charlotte landed in Bangor, Maine, after a woman’s behavior made the flight crew suspicious.  The crew opted to land and FBI agents met the plane at the gate.  

There are 179 passengers on board the Boeing 767, along with nine crew members.

There’s no immediate word on what made the woman’s behavior suspicious, but the decision was made to divert the plane given the crew’s concern.
