JetBlue pilot goes off the rails in-flight

A JetBlue captain yelled about a bomb and had to be locked out of the cockpit and restrained as the Las Vegas-bound flight was diverted to Texas. JetBlue Airways said in a statement that the captain of Flight 191 from New York had a “medical situation” and that the pilot in command of the aircraft elected to land in Amarillo about 10 am.
The co-pilot locked the captain out of the cockpit and asked passengers (over the speaker system) to restrain the man, which they did with gusto by all accounts.
The FBI is coordinating an investigation with airport police, Amarillo police, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Safety Administration, according to agency.
A sad day for the pilot but well done to the co-pilot for his logical actions and the way he obviously duped the pilot from the cockpit.
