An airline passenger faces federal charges following an unexpected landing in Tulsa.

Tulsa Police's bomb squad evacuated everyone from an Orlando-bound Alaskan Airlines jet after a boy on board noticed a case of fireworks. He told a flight attendant who then notified the pilots.

Tulsa International Airport security told us fireworks are not allowed on planes, and they're not yet sure how the man got past federal screeners with them.

The passenger carrying the fireworks faces charges for having explosives and a knife on the plane.
