The United States of America. The country is known for oversized everything, horrible Australian accents and a weird system of measurement that no one else uses. In a population of 300 million, there always gonna be some nutters and this man was a prime example after he made a run down the aerobridge screaming as he tried to board an American Airlines flight.
American Airlines flight 1060 was preparing to leave the gate at Miami, Florida when a man who had a ticket to board the flight started acting erratically and wasn’t cooperating with the gate agent, the flight crew, bound for Newark, New Jersey was preparing to offload the man when he made a run down the aerobridge, bypassing everyone while screaming, only to be stopped by some business class passengers after got his way onto the A321. As the passengers stopped him from moving further down the jet he was heard yelling “This is my plane” and “I’m the FBI”. He was removed by police and taken for a mental health evaluation.
After the man had been detained all passengers were searched and the A321 was searched, everyone was then allowed to reboard. The flight was delayed by over 3 hours and landed safely in Newark. No one was harmed during the incident.
