A really disturbing and shocking plot twist occurred in an already terrifying story about an attempted hijacking of a DL flight from LA to Atlanta.
In case you hadn’t already heard, a man attempted to crash a Delta flight, by opening the door to the plane.
This is actually impossible to do, but the man appeared to be hell-bent on bringing down the plane.
Thanks to a group of burly passengers, the crazed would-be hijacker was detained.
The attacker, whose name is Stephon Jamar Duncan, can be heard on the video below, screaming, as a group of passengers holds him down.

The plot twist, however, is what really has people shocked.
It turns out that Mr. Duncan is actually a Delta flight attendant.
Heavy.com reported that Stephon Jamar Duncan is a Delta Airlines flight attendant who had to be detained mid-air by crew members and fellow passengers while he was traveling off-duty on a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta, authorities said. The plane was diverted to Oklahoma City and Duncan was arrested, ABC News reports. The 34-year-old Duncan remains detained after the Friday, June 11, 2021, incident.
Oklahoma City Police spokesman Jermaine Johnson told ABC News that Duncan threatened to “take down the plane.” According to police, Duncan made “terroristic threats.” Police told ABC News Duncan was exhibiting signs of mental illness and was taken to the hospital after complaining of chest pain.
Delta Airlines issued a statement saying, “Thanks to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 1730 (LAX to ATL) who assisted in detaining an unruly passenger as the flight diverted to Oklahoma City (OKC). The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement. We apologize to our customers for the delay and any additional inconvenience this caused.” Delta said the flight continued on to Atlanta after police searched the plane.
Mr. Duncan was arrested and taken to a hospital after he said that he was experiencing “chest pains” and exhibiting signs of mental health issues, police said.
As of right now, no charges have been filed against Mr. Duncan – it appears the FBI is waiting to see what federal charges will apply to this incident.
