'Mystery pilot' near JetBlue flight at LAX

(LOS ANGELES TIMES) Los Angeles International Airport police were looking for a man reportedly dressed as a commercial airline pilot who disappeared on the jetway of a New York-bound flight Thursday morning, authorities said.

The incident happened about 6 a.m. in the bridge between Gate 31B at LAX’s Terminal 3 and a JetBlue aircraft preparing to take off to JFK airport in New York, airport officials said.

Checked luggage already was loaded, and passengers were preparing to board when an LAX employee encountered a man dressed as a pilot in the jetway, the hallway that corrals passengers onto the plane, LAX police Officer Rob Pedregon said.
