A device detonated aboard American Airlines Flight 203, at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Texas just after the aircraft landed on a flight from Austin, Texas.
The device was contained in a vinyl tote bag and located in the forward cargo bin with the checked baggage. The cargo pod containing the device was recovered from the aircraft and moved to an isolated area. Further examination of the cargo pod revealed metal ammunition can, steel colored pellets, and black powder residue. There were no injuries reported and the resulting damage was confined to charred baggage within the cargo pod and a scorched panel in the cargo bay of the aircraft. The bag belonged to a female passenger and was reportedly checked curb side at the airport in Austin by her husband, who did not
accompany her on the flight. The husband was later charged with two counts of destruction of aircraft to include one count for putting the device on board, and the other for destruction.
