Plane Diverted by Passenger Problem
Quote:
A US Airways plane from Pittsburgh to Reagan Washington National Airport was diverted to Washington Dulles International Airport because of an unruly passenger, the Federal Aviation Administration said Monday
This is interesting because of:
Quote:
Passengers cannot leave their seats during the last 30 minutes of any flight into Reagan National under new security rules
and
Quote:
"an air marshal jumped up with his gun and subdued him."
and
Quote:
all the passengers "were ordered to put our hands above our heads, and then we were quickly diverted to Washington-Dulles."
