Delta flight makes emergency landing after possible highjacking

A traveler endeavored to break the cockpit of a Delta Air Lines departure from Los Angeles to Nashville on Friday, driving the plane to make a crisis stop in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as indicated by authorities.

The cockpit was rarely penetrated, and the traveler was taken into government care, Stephanie Kitts with the Albuquerque International Sunport told CNN.

The FBI affirmed through Twitter that it reacted to the occurrence, however added, “There is no danger to the general population right now.”

A traveler on the flight, who addressed CNN, said the man “apparently unmerited, just got up and surged the pilot’s lodge and started beating on the entryways.” Grace Chalmers said the man was immediately brought somewhere around another traveler, who was then helped by the lodge team. She said he was held to the ground for around 20 minutes until the pilots could set down the plane at the Albuquerque International Sunport.

Video taken by Chalmers shows the man, shoeless and bound at the wrists and lower legs, being pulled from the fly. He can be heard discreetly yet over and again saying, “Stop this plane.”

Travelers were kept in Albuquerque for quite a long time while Delta made game plans for them to proceed to Nashville.

“We’ve all had the option to unwind,” Chalmers said by telephone from the Albuquerque air terminal, “yet I would say, at the time, it was amazingly distressing.”

In an articulation, Delta adulated the travelers and team on board Flight 386. “The airplane arrived without episode and the traveler was removed by law requirement,” the assertion said.
