Flight attendants tackle a man aboard a flight from London to Miami who reportedly tried to ignite an ``improvised explosive'' in his shoe.
Military jets escorted the plane to Boston's Logan International Airport where it landed safely. The man, identified as Richard Reid, is in custody.
Officials say he was alone traveling on a British passport, which may have been fake.
They say a flight attendant intervened after the man tried to light his shoe on fire. The man resisted and bit her.
Passengers subdued him, belting him into his seat.
