Sky Marshal Versus Pilot!

Tue Sep 25, 2001 9:55 pm

Security guards onboard commercial flights can present potential dangers to which I've never thought: the following story comes from the news section of Sept 01 to 15 of Justplanes.com.

Flight IR711, a Boeing 747 en route from Tehran to London Heathrow, made an emergency landing in Frankfurt on Thursday after a dispute between the pilot and security guards.
The fight followed an attempt by the guards to keep a passenger from visiting the pilot in the cockpit during the flight. The pilot then landed in Frankfurt airport, saying he did not have the morale to continue but the flight resumed to London 6 hours later.
