JetBlue captain goes berserk on NYC-to-Vegas flight (Videos in the link)
New York Post ^ | March 27, 2012 | BILL SANDERSON and PEDRO OLIVEIRA Jr.

Posted on 03/27/2012 12:17:24 PM PDT by Kaslin

A JetBlue captain went berserk on a flight from Kennedy Airport to Las Vegas today in an incident that forced the plane to make an emergency landing, passengers and authorities said.

“Say your prayers!” the crazed pilot screamed as he ran up and down the aisle, a passenger told The Post.

You know, it seems odd to me that a flight attendant and now a pilot would lose it, so close in time, and in such a similar way.

Something very strange is going on.

Laurie Dhue formerly of Fox News was on the flight and is reporting per telephone to Shepherd Smith

Consider terrorists doing things like putting a hallucinogenic put into the pilot’s meal.

Yep, it is called crew scheduling using a program called the crew “optimizer” aka the crew sodomizer...

My wife is on medical leave as a pilot from a “major” due to substaintial sleep deprivation issues. Looking back, the 2 years prior to her health collapse were absolutely horrendous, we never looked at the schedule she was working until the damage was done.... I am pretty sure the flying public will see more of this cr@p.

...or perhaps having some ground-staff jihadi taking a hallucinogenic or slow acting toxin and rubbing it on the cockpit controls while “cleaning”.

Interesting. My belief was that forces more .. sinister ... were at work. But this could easily be attributed to horrid personnel practices. This is one of the EXTREMELY FEW CASES where unionization might serve a role.

It might be the extra solar radiation caused by the solar storms going on recently.

Was the captain Flying While Muzzie?

The airport, the plane made the emergency landing is the Rick Husband Airport, which was renamed in 2003 after fallen NASA astronaut and Amarillo native Richard Douglas Husband, who died in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster in February of that year.

Nothing more sinister than greed at work here... ask any airline pilot how things are going since 9/11.

I am no union fan, especially ALPA. The Unions just roll over all the time at the expense of the members just to keep the gravy train alive. Crew rest is just a non-winner when negociating. Face the facts, the airlines will not hire more crew and just consume the ones there right now.

My wife timed out for the year in Oct of her last year she flew, nearly killed her. All she bid on was a start time essentially, every day was considered “an operational emergency” and the contract was ignored. Much akin to a huricane or major snow storm, type operations The operational emergency was the fact the big D was in Bankrupcy! I wish I could make this crap up. ALPA just went along with it and yawned...

In both these incidents, I didn’t hear about any on-board, armed federal air marshals stepping up. Have they all been laid-off?

They are either sleeping or holding back to see if there are any other outriders involved in the disruption. I thought it was interesting that so many phones were turned back on to take video of the incident. The videos showed what looked like a lot of people collecting in the aisle willing to help subdue/put the boot to the person if it was needed.

Certainly the globalists are interested in causing mayhem, death, destruction, fear etc far and wide.

And, they are happy to use Iranian terrorists and tons of others . . . e.g. the Muslim Destroyer in Chief in the Whitehouse.

Hard to guess which of many possibilities were the case.

Sleep deprivation can be quite horrific and take some strange twists in its results.

The LSD notion on the control surfaces from the ground crew is certainly plausible.

And, so are the more . . . complicated sleeper agent mind control craziness things no one wants to face or really accept as real in our current era.

May God have mercy on all of good heart toward Him.

Thx for the ping.

When I flew to Amarillo in 2009 from Nashville, via Dallas and back, there were no air marshals either, but Jet Blue doesn’t normally land in Amarillo. It was also reported that the pilot might have been a former war veteran and as such shouldn’t probably not have been permitted to fly

So, in light of your comments, ask me why my flying record since 9/11 amounts to exactly ONE short hop from OAK to SNA; a deviation from my all-but-absolute “NO FLY” policy allowed ONLY because it involved my Mother.

I have heard of this and feel for your wife.

I am suffering similarly after taking care of a friend who went through dementia for years before passing.

Been three months and I still cannot get back into a proper sleep schedule.

Was dog tired all weekend from not sleeping and finally got some rest Monday morn.

Just takes time and everyone is different.

Hopefully your wife will be better soon.
