MIDLAND - Tense Moments at Midland International Airport today.

The Marfa Sector of the Border Patrol was called out after it was believed that a plane out of Mexico landed illegally.

Turns out, it was a false alarm.

Midland Spokesman Ryan Stout says there was nothing illegal about this flight.

The flight came in later than expected and it all amounted to a miscommunication.

Border Patrol officials tell us all persons on the flight have been processed and found to be legal and allowed to continue on with their day.
