The airline who brought us televisions on the back of seats for comfort is in the news today for more than its innovations. A JetBlue pilot went on a mid-air rant and had to be subdued by passengers.

What was supposed to be a non-stop flight from New York to Las Vegas, turned in to an emergency landing in Texas. CBS reports Captain Clayton Obson, a veteran piolet, stormed down the aisles of the plane then began banging on the cockpit door. Instinct struck in and 6 passengers fought Obson and held him down for 30 minutes until the plane was able to land safely.

The FAA reported that the co-pilot intentionally locked Obson out of the cockpit because of his bizarre behavior. The co-pilot radioed in that there needed to be an emergency landing. After the plane landed, Obson was rushed to the hospital.

Stay tuned for updates.
