Orlando-Melbourne airport lockdown lifted after breach of security
Airport spokeswoman Lori Booker tells news outlets a student pilot boarded a passenger plane in the maintenance facility early Thursday, causing the lockdown.
The Melbourne Police Department tweeted that the person who boarded the plane has been taken into custody.
Booker said officials conducted a sweep of the airfield before re-opening the airport. She says no passengers were in the area when the student boarded the plane. She didn't say what kind of aircraft the suspect boarded. ■
