Passenger tries to break into cockpit on US flight
Passenger who tried enter cockpit being overpowered by other passengers.
The Delta Air flight from Los Angeles to Nashville made an emergency landing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the man was dragged off the plane with his hands and feet secured by zip ties.
He had repeatedly screamed "Stop this plane" as he was wrestled to the floor at the front of the cabin, according a phone camera footage of the incident on Friday.
An unnamed passenger told CNN that the man "seemingly unprovoked, just got up and rushed the pilot's cabin and began banging on the doors."
The FBI in Albuquerque confirmed on Twitter that it had responded to the incident.
"The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement."
Remaining passengers spent five hours in Albuquerque before a new flight took them to Nashville.
