Veteran JetBlue pilot who yelled 'Bomb!' subdued by passengers

Veteran JetBlue pilot who yelled 'Bomb!' subdued by passengers

Imagine you are sitting on a plane and suddenly the captain starts running down the aisle shouting about terrorists and bombs.

That is exactly what on happened on Tuesday to JetBlue Airways flight 191 passengers traveling from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York to Las Vegas, reports the Star Ledger.

According to eyewitnesses, the flight’s captain, Clayton Osbon, seemed disoriented, agitated and drinking water as he walked through the cabin shouting about Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and al Qaeda. “They are going to take us down,” he screamed and then told passengers to “Say the Lord’s Prayer.” At the back of the plane, members of the crew tried, without success, to calm Osbon.

The 49-year-old veteran pilot then attempted to return to the cockpit, which by this time, had been locked by the co-pilot.

According to CBS News, a passenger said the captain was banging on the cockpit door yelling,  “Bring the throttle to idle! Bring it to idle! Bring it to idle! We’re going down, we’re all going to die! Pray to Jesus. Open this goddam door!”
