JetBlue Pilot Suspended

    Emergency workers tend to a JetBlue captain that had a "medical situation" during a Las Vegas-bound flight from JFK International airport, Tuesday, March 27, 2012, in Amarillo, Texas. Passengers said the pilot screamed that Iraq or Afghanistan had planted a bomb on the flight, was locked out of the cockpit, and then tackled and restrained by passengers. The pilot who subsequently took command of the aircraft elected to land in Amarillo at about 10 a.m., JetBlue Airways said in a statement. (AP Photo/Steve Douglas)

    Clayton Osbon, the JetBlue pilot whose erratic behavior forced an emergency landing on Tuesday has been suspended, the airline’s CEO said Wednesday. Passengers said that the pilot ran to the cockpit door and began banging on it after the plane’s copilot, troubled by his colleague’s behavior, locked him out of the cabin. He was also apparently yelling about terrorism. Osborn is reportedly currently receiving medical attention, and the FBI, FAA and TSA are investigating the incident.
