Air China flight forced to land for 'security' reason

(G.N.S) DT.15 In a weird incident, a passenger used a fountain pen as a weapon to hold a flight attendant hostage on Air China's Beijing-bound flight today.

All passengers and crew on Flight 1350 made it safely off the plane after it landed in Zhengzhou city at 10 am due to what had earlier been described by authorities as an unspecified "illegal interference".

The flight took off from Changsha, the capital of southern Hunan province at 8:40 a.m. and was expected to arrive at Beijing Capital International Airport by around 11 a.m., local media outlets reported. The police said the passenger, 41, had a history of mental illness.

But the less than two-and-half-hour journey turned longer as it made an unusual landing at Zhengzhou in Henan province in just over an hour of flight, as per a post made on Air China's official Weibo microblog, the Chinese equivalent to Twitter.

The Zhengzhou airport informed that it immediately activated emergency measures so that the passengers who faced an emergency landing were in a stable mood.

According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), a man carrying a fountain pen threatened to harm Air China staff members on board the plane, forcing the aircraft's pilots to take action.

"Presently the airport is operating as normal", the group said in a statement.
