JetBlue pilot charged over flight chaos
The US flight captain who suffered an apparent mental breakdown during a domestic flight has been charged with interfering with cabin crew.
Court documents say JetBlue’s Clayton Osbon told his co-pilot “we’re not going to Vegas” and started ranting.
Osbon began screaming about a bomb and had to be restrained by passengers about three-and-a-half hours into a flight from New York to Las Vegas.
Flight 191, carrying 135 people, made an emergency landing in Texas.
