ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --

The FBI is investigating after an AirTran pilot's gun goes missing at Orlando International Airport.

According to a statement from the airline, the pilot noticed
that his bags were missing Tuesday evening (Nov. 2). One of the bags
contained a gun.

Officials said the pilot has been trained to use firearms by the
Federal Air Marshal Service as part of the Federal Flight Deck
Officer program.

The airline says passengers on the pilot's plane were removed
and screen before their plane was cleared to depart. Details about
where the bags went missing or where the plane was going were not
released.

FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier said Wednesday that the agency
is investigating.
