Man In DTW Security Breach Tried To Fly From FWA

The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette reported that the mentally ill man responsible for setting off a security breach at DTW this past Monday also tried to buy a ticket at FWA two days prior. He refused to show identification... as always, no ID=no ticket.

More on both the DTW and FWA incidents here: http://www.journalgazette.net/articl...00212/LOCAL07/302129965/1002/LOCAL

The big question is: Did he want to buy an AA, DL, or UA ticket? He thought he was the "king of Amsterdam" (ha!), so my guess is that he wanted to fly DL/KL to AMS. (Could our other FWA-based member, Skyrat, tell us more?)


"Did he really need the triple bypass? Or was it the miles?"

The BIG QUESTIONS are: 1) Why was this person allowed in public alone, without supervision? 2) Why was this person allowed to drive a car?

This same man paid a visit to TOL as well last Friday but disappeared before police could question him. He also wanted to buy a ticket and told the agent he was a "King" and didn't need to pay to fly!

Sounds just like the incident at FWA...

Basically, the guy had significant brain damage after a car accident a few months earlier, and forgot his antipsychotic medications. He was previously voluntarily in a mental institution.

If that is the case you can't really blame him. Poor fellow.

That didn't answer my question, why is he out loose and driving a car.

You do you think is to blame?

Same question ponders in my mind, especially after he already totaled one!

This just in from the local CBS affiliate: The man in question also tried to buy tickets from every airline at FWA and got a $50 citation for an illegally parked vehicle by Fort Wayne's finest. (Should have been ten times as much, IMO.)

Video and full story here: http://www.wane.com/dpp/video/local/...irport-suspect-cited-in-Fort-Wayne

One comment in the comments section struck me as odd: "(...) unfortunately they charge to (sic) much for tickets so no one will care to fly out of there." I do have to admit that FWA has strong reverse leakage potential, but last time I checked, "no one" and 280,000 pax/year aren't one and the same. And it's the airlines, not airports, that set ticket prices.
