We all hate delayed flights, but this man in our featured story today who caused the delay is on a different level.
A Miami-bound plane was grounded and reportedly flight controls were broken after a man raged to the cockpit and attempted to jump off from its window.
“During boarding, an American Airlines passenger charged down the jetway and onto the aircraft. The man entered the open cockpit and damaged the flight controls. A pilot in the cockpit tried to stop him and then the man tried to jump out the open cockpit window. The aircraft is damaged and remains at the gate.”
The aircraft was set to leave San Pedro, Honduras for Miami.

American Airlines released a statement:
“A customer entered the open flight deck and caused damage to the aircraft. Crew members intervened and the individual was ultimately apprehended by local law enforcement.”
At the moment, the motive of the man is still unknown and he has been taken into custody.
