Another attempted robbery…smh 🤦♂️
Orlando Melbourne International Airport shut down on Thursday morning after a 26-year-old student pilot hopped a fence and tried to board an American Airlines plane.
Around 2 a.m., the student drove to the hangar when the A321 aircraft was parked, left his car running, and boarded the plane. Two people — a maintenance worker and a supervisor — were on board the aircraft when one noticed something moving. When the student approached the cockpit, the two men grabbed him and took him off the aircraft. Police arrived within two minutes.
“There obviously seemed to be planning involved,” Lori Booker, a spokesperson for the airport, said at a press conference on Thursday morning.
The A321 was undergoing maintenance at the time of the crime.
