Disturbance on LA-to-Hawaii flight brings FBI, fighter jets

20 May 2017, 03:02 | Marion Schneider

Investigators said a flight attendant used a service cart to stop the suspect.

Two Pacific command F-22 Raptors from the US Pacific Command escorted the flight for the final part of the flight, Navy Cmdr. Basden says the man scowled at him, opened and closed the laptop computer and then sat in a different seat.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly was briefed on the disturbance, according to a statement from the department.

Passengers took video of him being taken off the plane in handcuffs.

In this photo provided by Donna Basden, a man is escorted off an American Airlines flight after it landed in Honolulu, Friday, May 19, 2017. "We were greeted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They are now taking us off the plane a few rows at a time for dog sniffing and interviews".

Law enforcement officials identify the man as Anil Uskanil, a 25-year-old from Turkey.

"When the Airbus A321 was in the air, the man allegedly tried to break through the cockpit door, throwing himself up against a beverage cart as he tried to force his way into the first class cabin".

Pedregon referred further questions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but a source told CNS Uskanil was the same man who caused the disturbance on the Honolulu-bound flight. Police determined he had been drinking, but did not meet criteria for public drunkenness.

Even before becoming president and having to deal with the nuclear threats of North Korea, Trump took aim at the country's leader. News reports that Comey had written memos about his conversations with Trump since January have fueled that aspect of the probe.


Flight 31 from Los Angeles landed safely at 11:35 a.m. local time, according to American Airlines.

A Homeland Security tweet says there are no other reports of disruptions to flights, but the department continues to "monitor all flights out of an abundance of caution".

Lorenzen and his wife Penny Lorenzen, of Orange County, California, were sitting in first class and saw a “really serious look” on the flight attendants face.

"At this early stage, the FBI will not speculate about the nature of this event", according to bureau statement that went on to add "the FBI is unaware of any other threats aboard American Airlines flights or other aircraft".

Passenger Allison Forberger, an eyewitness who lives in Kapolei, Hawaii, was seated right behind first class.

There were 181 passengers and six crew members on board. Passengers say he had to be subdued after trying to get to the front of the jetliner and was duct-taped to his seat until the plane landed.

"A Police K-9 searched and cleared the area". "He was pushing against the cart and a bunch of guys grabbed him". He was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing, cited, given a pending court date and released to board his flight to Honolulu.
