Foreign Student Pilot Gets Dragged From Aircraft. Here’s What He Was Planning to do.

Published

A foreign student pilot in the state of Florida attempted to climb over a barbed wire topped fence and board a commercial aircraft at Orlando Melbourne International Airport in an attempt to steal the plane.

Why are we still allowing foreign student pilots to take lessons in this country? Seems like after 9/11 that’s a horrifically stupid idea.

Authorities say that around 2 a.m., part-time aviation management student Nishal Sankat parked his vehicle outside the airport and left it running while he scrambled over the fence near a hangar. He then climbed aboard an American Airlines plane that was undergoing maintenance.

Airport spokesperson Lori Booker told the media that an avionics technician was in the plane’s galley at the time, and saw Sankat’s shadow when the suspect boarded the plane.

“He turned around and said, ‘Who are you? Show me your badge,” Booker reported. She said the employee then told Sankat, “Get on the ground, mister. You’re in trouble.”

The technician then grabbed Sankat and hauled him off the plane with the help of another tech. While one of them held the suspect down, another called the police.

But after being dragged off the plane, Sankat tore away from the employees and darted back toward the plane. He was soon apprehended by police, charged with attempting to steal the jet, and faces criminal trespassing charges and a visa violation.

Sankat is a native of the Caribbean dual-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, and entered the U.S. through Canada. He has been a student at the Florida Institute of Technology since 2014, has a Florida driver’s license and a commercial pilot’s license. But he is not licensed to fly the Airbus 321 he boarded.

Authorities used a robotic arm to check Sankat’s vehicle for explosives and then had it towed away. Sankat’s home was also searched and his electronic devices confiscated.

As of now, there hasn’t been a motive established for Sankat’s actions, but whatever they were, you can guarantee they weren’t good.

Let’s be thankful the guy was stopped before he had an opportunity to get on board that plane and hurt innocent people.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
