An Eastern Airlines jetliner carrying 312 passengers made an unscheduled landing Saturday at Grand Cayman Island after an anonymous caller said a bomb was aboard, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

All 312 passengers and the aircraft’s 10 crew members left the Lockheed L-1011 jetliner safely, FAA spokesman Roger Myers said. No bomb was found.
