A US Airways pilot was arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats and disorderly conduct after he made "inappropriate" comments at a Philadelphia airport security checkpoint, authorities said.

"The pilot made some comments that the [security] screeners thought were inappropriate," said Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac, who declined to elaborate on what was said.

Elwood Menear, 46, of Annville faces misdemeanor charges and he remained in custody, a police spokesman said.

Menear had been scheduled to fly from Philadelphia to Milwaukee.
