(KSL News) Things didn't go as planned for some passengers at the Salt Lake International Airport.

Forty-five passengers had already boarded and were ready to leave for Pasco, Washington, when the crew conducting a routine preflight check discovered the plane had not received its required post-maintenance security sweep.

So the plane had to be stopped, the passengers had to go through security again, and the plane had to be searched.

Nothing was found, and the flight went on its way about an hour late.
