Watch as woman 'who stripped and ran through Jet2 plane shouting "Allahu Akbar"' is restrained after hero dad steps in | The Sun

THIS is the shocking moment a woman stripped and ran through a Jet2 plane screaming "Allahu Akbar" before being taken out by a hero dad and arrested.

Phillip O'Brien, 35, sprung into action after the passenger – in a bra and cap – sparked mayhem claiming there were explosives onboard.

She had told youngsters she was with if they were "ready to die" before launching herself at the cockpit on the Cyprus to Manchester flight.

The dad-of-three told The Sunday Mirror: "As you can imagine everyone was sh***ing themselves.

"I spoke to staff and said, 'Why have you not put her to the floor?'"

After being told by cabin crew they couldn't do anything, the drainage engineer, who used to work in security, tackled the woman.
