Filipinos: “According to my interview with Hayden, the two, South East Asian men acting in consort were suspicious from the get go. “Before the flight took off, the flight attendants had to repeatedly tell the men to get in their seats.” The plane took off. Immediately after the Captain made the first announcement, Hayden told me that, “like clockwork, the first [SE Asian] guy got out of his seat and laid on the floor and started yelling.”
Thanks - I thought at first they might have been Shakers...
From your link - LOLOLOLOLOLOL!:
“Hayden’s wife of 42 years, Katie, who was also on the flight, was less impressed. Even as her husband struggled with the agitated passenger, she barely looked up from “The Richest Man in Babylon,” the book she was reading.
“The woman sitting in front of us was very upset and asked me how I could just sit there reading,” Katie Hayden said. “Bob’s been shot at. He’s been stabbed. He’s taken knives away. He knows how to handle those situations. I figured he would go up there and step on somebody’s neck, and that would be the end of it. I knew how that situation would end. I didn’t know how the book would end.”
I'm guessing from one of the southern islands.
Hayden, a 65-year-old former police commander, had enlisted a gray-haired gentleman sitting next to him to assist. The man turned out to be a former US Marine. "I had looked around the plane for help, and all the younger guys had averted their eyes. When I asked the guy next to me if he was up to it, all he said was, 'Retired captain. USMC.' I said, 'You'll do,' " Hayden recalled. "So, basically, a couple of grandfathers took care of the situation." We need to reopen enlistment to these guys.
THOSE are men.
