    Well what is it (or least pray tell what have you heard)?

    I am always amazed at how the media finds the need to make the reporting of any incident appear
    more sensational.
    a) The guy drunk or otherwise wanted to get off the plane already on the ground.
    b) Fact... the exit door on a 737 is adjacent to the cockpit.
    c) So the story automatically becomes as "charge of cockpit"

    it's sad that it seems something like this happens about once a week these days.

    I was born there and constantly have to resist the urge to "charge the cockpit" while on-board. It must be too much sun exposure as a child.

    I guess this guy wanted to make it onto the no fly list.

    I think the correct statement would be "these are reported about once a week."

    My feeling is that things like this have always happened....like the TSA finding guns in carry-on bags. It's only the ways in finding out about these things have grown.

    That's a good point.
