Captain Clayton Osbon's mid-air meltdown that resulted in his plane landing in a hurry in Amarillo has come up with a not so novel strategy to defend himself.

Osbon was charged earlier this month with interfering in the operations of a flight crew after he was locked out of the cockpit and subdued by crew members and passengers.

Yesterday his attorney filed a notice in the U.S. district court here in Amarillo saying Osbon would use the popular insanity defense to defend his client.

The passengers could have told he that before they landed the plane.
