iStockphoto/Thinkstock(PRESTWICK, Scotland) — A passenger aboard a plane bound for New York City found a note in the bathroom saying that a passenger planned to set fire to the plane.

BBC News reports that a BBC producer was on the plane and found a note in the plane’s toilet that read “I’ll set this plane on fire,” and contained a seat number. The flight was escorted by a Royal Air Force interceptor to Glasgow Prestwick Airport in Scotland.

There were 326 passengers on board the plane and they were kept on board the plane while authorities worked to determine the credibility of the threat.

Authorities plan on interviewing every passenger on the plane.
