Man Promises to End Terrorism, Save the World – Gets Arrested Breaking Into Delta Cockpit

A man on board Delta flight DL579 from San Juan to New York JFK tried to break into the aircraft’s cockpit this morning. But he was doing it for San Juan’s own good, and for the good of all.

The 30 year old passenger yelled, “I am God. Tomorrow San Juan is going to disappear. I came to save the world, and I’m going to end terrorism.”

Frankly the world could use some saving, and if it brought the war on terror to a close at the same time, so much the better. The pilot did not find him credible, and the plane returned to the San Juan airport where the man was taken into custody.

However since Delta does not cancel flights for any reason (even if it means delaying them a day), the Boeing 737-900ER is back in the air and enroute to New York albeit this time with just 159 passengers.

  2. It never fails to amaze me how much content Gary puts out. Especially, since I think he has a day job, a wife, and a child. To me, a few typos are no big deal. Gary keep up the good work.
