HARTFORD, CT – Connecticut State Police are investigating the discovery of a “white substance” in the bathroom of a JetBlue plane.

On Monday, flight attendants on a JetBlue flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Bradley International Airport, just north of Hartford, discovered a mysterious white powder in the bathroom of the jet.

The flight landed without incident and passengers were allowed to deplane.

According to the airline, the plane had 135 passengers and five crew members onboard. As a precautionary measure, two flight attendants were taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

JetBlue flights were delayed because of the incident. No other airlines were impacted.
