WILMINGTON, Ohio -- The FBI is investigating
whether two pilots for a regional cargo airline
mailed feces to company executives and took out
unwanted magazine subscriptions for them.

No charges had been filed Friday against the
unidentified pilots for ABX Air Inc., which is
based in this city about 40 miles northeast of

It was unclear Friday whether the feces were human
or animal. Sending biohazardous material through
the mail is a federal crime under domestic
terrorism statutes, FBI spokesman Michael Brooks

The pilots union for ABX issued a message that
said that the FBI questioned the pilots this week
and placed them on the federal terrorism roster
known as the "selectee" list. That means the
pilots would face additional security screening
any time they pass through a passenger checkpoint
and could face suspension of flying privileges,
the union said.

"We were told that they (the FBI) consider ABX Air
vital to national security," Lynn Nowell, general
counsel with Teamsters Local 1224, said on the
recorded phone message. "The pilots answered
thoughtfully and fully, and we are confident they
will be cleared or exonerated."

A message seeking comment from the company was
left at its offices Friday night.

Investigators would not identify the pilots, the
executives or the magazines. Brooks also would not
say how the agency was alerted to the alleged
incidents or when they took place.

ABX Air runs an air cargo hub in Wilmington on
behalf of global shipping giant DHL. It operates a
115-plane airline that carries freight nationally.
