JetBlue Flight 191
March 30, 2012 by staff
JetBlue Flight 191, JetBlue says the crew of Las Vegas-bound flight 191 — which had to make an emergency landing in Texas because of the strange and frightening behavior of its pilot — will remain quiet about the incident.
“We understand and appreciate everyone’s desire to hear directly from the crew regarding their experience, but the crew has decided to decline all media opportunities in order to spend time with their families,” JetBlue Airways Corp. said in a statement Friday.
The flight Tuesday that started in New York proceeded normally for most of the trip. But pilot Clayton Osbon became increasingly incoherent, left the cckpit and later sprinted down the cabin yelling jumbled remarks about Sept. 11 and Iran, documents and witnesses say. Co-pilot Jason Dowd brought an off-duty JetBlue captain who was flying as a passenger into the cckpit to assist and locked the door.
When Osbon tried to re-enter by banging on the door, the co-pilot gave an order through the intercom to restrain Osbon, according to the documents, which don’t mention Dowd by name. Passengers wrestled Osbon to the ground, and Dowd diverted the flight from New York to Amarillo, Texas. No one onboard was seriously injured.
