A JetBlue pilot went through an apparent mental breakdown during a flight from New York City to Las Vegas yesterday, when he was locked out of the cockpit by the flight staff.
According to one witness, the pilot emerged from the restroom mentioning a bomb and shouting "Iraq, al-Qaida, terrorism, we're all going down." He then reportedly approached the cockpit and began repeatedly banging on the door asking for the code which had apparently been changed to prevent his reentry.TDW
He was allegedly subdued by multiple passengers prior to landing.
