Arkansas teen wanted to steal plane, fly it to rap concert

提交時間:
 
An 18-year-old Arkansas man arrested at Texarkana Regional Airport last month told investigators he intended to fly a stolen plane to a rap music concert in another state. Asked about his lack of training as a pilot, Scott told Texarkana police that he didn't believe there was much more to the task than pushing buttons and pulling levers.

If he took off it would not be any loss, except for the jet of course.

Oh wow - just by the headline I didn't realize he thought he was going to steal an AA eagle. Just 'pulling levers and pushing knobs'. Sorry but that is the dumbest thing I have heard in a long while.

Like a friend of mine says... We have a 100% perfect history in aviation... we have never got one stuck up there that did not eventually come back down!

"A couple of levers and a few buttons to fly". Like someone mentioned, he should've used a lever to pry open a car door and drive there. Now he'll need at least 4 to pry open his jail cell!

LOL, A lot of people know about auto flight (or have heard about it) and planes (some) can autoland and with self driving cars... I guess he thought that all planes had to have it.

Sorry young man. You are so lucky the police arrested you. Thank them; they saved your life. When you are free, take flying lessons and see if you still feel the same way.

It takes all types.... I would say it is clear that this person has a Criminal Record and is in the system so to speak.... Based on the comment: "Two officers reportedly recognized the man as Scott before authorities opened the plane door and arrested him." - I very seriously doubt that he could have gotten the APU Started, much less the engines.

The article says a 44 seat a/c, What regional jet under American has 44. I thought their smallest was an ERJ-145 that carries 50?

The ERJ-140 has 44 seats. AE also has 37 seat ERJ-135 as well.

Thanks... I thought those were parked a long time ago... The 145 is about retirement age as it is.

He had to have had an accomplice; those jets requires a 2-person crew to steal it.

How would someone this dumb know that? He just knew there were some buttons to push and levers to pull. Don't need two people for THAT.

He was correct about much of it.... There are Buttons and levers.. His problem was he misjudged the QTY and complexity! Keep in mind the day and life of an Airline Pilot.... How many Buttons do you push and how many levers get pulled.... Keep in mind the Throttle's are levers and technically so is the yolk. His problem was he couldn't figure out which one's and in which order they had to comply with... If he had in fact gotten off the ground, just imagine how bad it would have been... I mean getting off the ground is optional... getting back on the ground is not optional!

Were I believe that a 2 person crew is needed and required I would not say it could not be done. There have been times when a crew member is incapacitated and the other crew member has to land. Look at British Airways Flight 5390
