Beschrijving:
The B737 aircraft was on a charter flight for LTU from Tenerife, when a 38-year-old man, whose motive was unknown, attacked the pilot-in-command. The perpetrator allegedly forced his way into the cockpit while the aircraft was still in Spanish airspace and began attacking the pilot. The aircraft lost altitude briefly, but the co-pilot was able to stabilize it. The pilot-in-command called for help and the crew members and four passengers were able to subdue the offender before the aircraft landed safely. The perpetrator was arrested and is being prosecuted.
