A JetBlue flight from New York to Las Vegas was forced to land in Texas today after the pilot flipped out, threatened to blow up the plane and had to be subdued by passengers, the Amarillo Globe-News reports.
Update at 3:03 p.m. ET: CNN quotes one passenger, Tom Murphy, as saying that the captain had come into the cabin and initially tried to break into a locked bathroom, then on the cockpit door.
At one point, Murphy tells CNN, the flight attendants tried to take the pilot to the back of the plane, but he broke free and ran to the front, threatening to blow up the plane and saying there was a bomb on board.
