Drunk Brit jailed for in-flight bomb hoax9 April 2011
A drunk who sparked panic by claiming the plane passenger next to him was a suicide bomber was yesterday jailed for three years.
James Glen, 38, was flying to Heathrow from Australia when he told a stewardess Ali Ghazanfar had a gun and would let off a bomb unless he was given Â£20,000.
Innocent Mr Ghazanfar was searched, before Glen was charged with making a bomb hoax. He pleaded guilty.
