My brother related a story he had heard on the news about a month or two
ago.  He said that during a FEDEX or UPS flight a person occupying the
jumpseat went nuts and attacked the pilot/copilot with a hammer.
Apparently this attack lasted about half an hour!! and the pilot/copilot
actually managed to safely land the plane. During the fight the a/c was
rolled in an attempt to subdue this crazy guy. This all sounds unlikely
and I tryed the NTSB database for any occurence but found nothing.
Anybody hear anything?
TIA
