Chloe Haines, 25, became so unruly on a Jet2 flight from London Stansted to Dalaman that RAF fighter jets had to escort the aircraft back to Stansted. Haines had attempted to open the aircraft door and to enter the cockpit. When crewmembers tried to intervene, she scratched and attempted to bite them. She was restrained by crew and fellow passengers. Residents in Essex called the emergency services after they were alarmed by the sonic boom made by the fighter jets. Haines was later fined £85,000. (Editor’s note: My own daughter was at her boyfriend’s house; they heard the sonic boom and then a crash from the garage. Much of their wine stock had been destroyed!)
