An American Airlines flight to Miami had to be grounded after a passenger rushed the cockpit and damaged the plane controls.

The flight was scheduled to take off from Honduras Tuesday night, when the passenger “entered the open flight deck and caused damage to the aircraft”, the airline says.

The passenger then tried to escape through a cockpit window before he was stopped by a pilot.

Passengers were moved to a replacement plane and the flight took off later that night.

Have you witnessed any unruly passengers on airplanes in the last year?
