Was Jet Blue Pilot Insane While Flying? His Attorney Claims He Was!

I previously wrote about this serious incident that needs to be investigated as a serious aviation near-miss. (See previous posts here and here.)

The pilot was arrested after the plane made an emergency landing and charges were filed against him for “knowingly interfering … with the performance of the duties of a flight crew member …”.

Now his attorney says he was legally insane, and therefore not responsible for his actions, See the Story in The Wall Street Journal by clicking here.

Legally insane pilots? Seems pretty scary to me.
