Watch video! Two U.S. F-16 fighter jets escorted a Panama City-bound plane back to Toronto on Friday after a bomb threat was made on board by a disruptive passenger, a federal law enforcement official told CBS News correspondent Bob Orr and CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton.

Flight 772 turned around over West Virginia about 45 minutes after its 7 a.m. (1100 GMT) departure from Toronto Pearson International Airport, said Sunwing Airlines spokeswoman Janine Chapman. She said an "agitated passenger directly threatened the aircraft" but did not elaborate on the threat.

Cell phone video shows the SWAT team hustling through the Boeing 737, barking orders to the jet's passengers, including Sharon Ramsay. More on CBS News.
