NYT - Pilot Accused of Threatening to Shoot Captain Over Potential Diversion

A pilot was indicted last month for allegedly threatening to shoot his captain if the flight they were piloting was diverted for a passengerís medical needs, U.S. officials and court documents said.

Federal court records show that a grand jury in Utah indicted the pilot, Jonathan J. Dunn, on Oct. 18, charging him with one count of interference with a flight crew on Aug. 22, 2022.

Mr. Dunn, according to the indictment, is accused of assaulting and intimidating a crew member and using a dangerous weapon in the act. The court records did not specify the weapon, but the indictment said Mr. Dunn was authorized to carry a firearm on board.
