Man threatens to crash Qantas Jumbo using mind power

Forget bombs strapped to your genitals – the newest threat in aviation security is now “mind power”. At least according to one slightly deranged passenger on Qantas flight QF31 yesterday.

During the flight from Sydney to Singapore, the passenger got up and announced that he was going to bring the flight down, using “the power of his mind”.

The threat was taken seriously – and the passenger was restrained. According to the flight crew, there “may have been some alcohol or drugs involved”.

Upon arrival at Singapore Changi Airport, the man was arrested, where is still being held pending an investigation. It is unknown whether he’ll use his amazing mind power to break out of jail.
