After last week's SoCal teen and his planned hijacking, this morning a hoax threat was called in about an LAX bound fight from New York City. The United Airlines flight landed safely here in Los Angeles, but taxied to a remote location, according to the Daily News.

AP: "FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said the move Monday afternoon was strictly precautionary and that the person who made the call to a law enforcement agency is under investigation."

71 people were onboard.
