Passenger Tries To Open Plane Doors At 36,000ft And Screams 'We're On A Flight Simulator'

MAILONLINE.COM - A man who tried to open the doors of an aircraft at 36,000ft while shouting 'It's OK we are just on a flight simulator' has been arrested.

The 22-year-old man had to be restrained by air hostesses and passengers before being tied down with seatbelts.

Travelers aboard Thomson flight TOM1269 from Majorca to Newcastle were left terrified when the man, of Ashington, Northumberland, tried to throw open one of the emergency doors.

The pilot diverted the plane to Gatwick Airport so the man could be arrested after being wrestled into submission aboard the flight.

The man was questioned by police on suspicion of endangering the safety of an aircraft.

A 28-year-old passenger, from Newcastle, who did not want to be named, said: 'It was absolutely mental.

'Suddenly all the lights came on and all the air hostesses were shouting and we could see a lad trying to open the emergency door.

'The plane started shaking. I thought it was going to go down.

'His friends tried to pull him away from the door and he started punching them and saying; "It's OK we are just on a flight simulator".

'He was off his head. Then this other guy came from nowhere and smacked him in the head.'

The mid-air drama started about 45 minutes into the early morning flight from Palma Airport yesterday.

Lights in the cabin were dimmed and most passengers were either sleeping or eating breakfast when they were disturbed as cabin crew suddenly switched the lights on and began dealing with the incident. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

    MUMBAI - A surgical team in India successfully removed a massive brain tumor from a man Thursday, weighing over 4 pounds. It was a lengthy, nearly seven-hour procedure and doctors believe it could be the heaviest ever recorded.  The tumor, which protruded from the top of the man's skull, was so large that it seemed “like a head on top of another head,” Trimurti Nadkarni, head of the neurosurgery department at Nair Hospital, told the Indian Express.
