A Wizz Air plane was forced to turn in the air and land at Stavanger airport, Norway after a drunk man attempted to storm the cockpit.
“We are moving out to Stavanger airport after reporting a person who has disembarked on a plane. The plane has not landed yet, and we are on our way out to take care of the situation as soon as the plane is on the ground,” Norwegian South West police wrote on Twitter at around 9 am local time.
Police and fire department crew was deployed to the airport. The perpetrator, a man in his 60s, was arrested upon landing.
The plane was initially heading to Iceland from Hungary.
