Last week, it was revealed that an angry Southampton Town resident left a threatening message on the 's complaint hotline, prompting a visit from the FBI.
According to Jim Brundige, the airport manager, , a federal offense. However, the caller — a man whose name was not released — also left his name, telephone and address, which certainly made it easier for federal investigators. Brundige said the FBI paid him a visit. No charges were filed.
The situation serves as a reminder that the Hamptons biggest airport is not immune to threats we often hear about at larger, commercial airline hubs.
