Scary stuff – and a hero flight crew – on a plane full of passengers bound for Nashville today.
Crew members on Delta flight 836 out of Los Angeles jumped into action when a man allegedly tried to breach the cockpit, with crew and passengers detaining and zip-tying the unidentified man while terrified passengers praised the crew for their bravery.

In a statement, Delta thanked the crew and passengers for detaining the “unruly passenger.”
“Thanks to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 386, LAX to Nashville (BNA), who assisted in detaining an unruly passenger as the flight diverted to Albuquerque (ABQ). The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement. We apologize to our customers for the delay any additional inconvenience.”
There’s no word yet on the man’s identity, or what led him to think it was a good idea to try to breach the cockpit of his flight.
Was this guy actually trying to hijack the plane, or was he just high out of his mind on something that led him to make an incredibly stupid decision?
