Gentleman tries to storm cockpit, twice, then smokes cigarette on plane when his efforts fail

Post by Roofus »

A Canadian man has been arrested on suspicion of interference with flight crew members after he attempted to break into the flight deck of a Toronto-bound flight twice. The man faces the threat of 20 years imprisonment in addition to a $25,000 fine if found guilty.

Sebastian Bien-Aine of Toronto forced the pilots of Porter Airlines flight PD134 to divert to the remote Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport in Pittston Township, Pennsylvania just 30 minutes after departure Newark Liberty Airport last Sunday.

In a newly filed affidavit, an FBI agent investigating the incident alleges Bien-Aine got out of his seat immediately after takeoff and while the small Dash 8 turbo-prop regional aircraft was still in its initial climb out of Newark.

Witnesses claim Bien-Aine “charged” towards the flight deck and tried to open door but found it had already been secured shut by the pilots. A flight attendant “directed” Bien-Aine back to his seat but moments later he got back up and charged towards the flight deck for a second try.

Flight attendants and passengers tried to get Bien-Aine back into his seat but he locked himself in the lavatory where he remained for 15-minutes, ignoring repeated requests for him to leave.

When he eventually came out, flight attendants saw smoke and ashes on the floor, and detected a strong smell of cigarettes. At this point, the Captain decided to land the aircraft at the nearest airport and Bien-Aine was taken into custody by local law enforcement.

Bien-Aine appeared in court on Thursday where he was indicted by a federal grand jury for interference with flight crew. The suspect has been remanded in custody pending a trial which has been scheduled for September 26.

Didn't you know?
Even smoking in a crowded multi level carpark or in a traffic jam is a bigger crime than even hijacking a plane and crashing it into a building, so doing it on a plane would kill everyone instantly, and make the plane fall out of the sky.

All those vehicle fumes are good for you, but a single cigarette from 10 metres away will literally kill every single person who even sees it instantly.

He'll get a $500 fine for attempted hijacking and 20-30 years for smoking on a plane.
