Passengers on a Delta flight bound to Spain from New York got a scare when a suspicious device was found on board.

Flight 126 left the gate at John F. Kennedy International Airport Thursday night, only to return about an hour later after a passenger found strange wiring in the bathroom.

All 206 passengers were taken off the plane as a bomb squad did a search.

The wiring turned out to be non-explosive, but it certainly didn't belong there either.

The flight took off again for Madrid Friday morning. A Delta spokesperson said the flight had turned around and came back to JFK out of an abundance of caution.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
