  PHILADELPHIA - Authorities responding to a bomb threat searched a Virgin Islands-bound flight Tuesday but found nothing suspicious. The threat was called in from an airport courtesy phone around 9:30 a.m., according to Mark Pesce, a spokesman for Philadelphia International Airport. Passengers had not yet boarded the US Airways flight, which was headed for St. Thomas. The plane was taken to a remote location at the airport and searched, Pesce said. No evacuations were ordered. The flight eventually departed around 1 p.m., about three hours late, according to airline officials.
