Accused Of Threatening To Crash Plane Into Wall Street
You know the old
warning, "Be careful what you say -- it could come back to haunt
you"? A case in point would be that of UAL Capt. Robert Feneziani,
who's been booked on charges of threatening to fly his plane into
New York's financial district.
Feneziani is scheduled to be back in court on Wednesday, after
pleading not guilty last week to charges related to the threat,
which was supposedly made in late 2003.
A woman whom authorities declined to identify said Feneziani was
disturbed "because he was frustrated that some people made easy
money," according to court documents obtained by CNN.
Now, it's pretty clear from the documents associated with this
case that the woman had an ongoing relationship with Feneziani. It
was also clear that the woman and the pilot were involved in some
sort of civil case that apparently marked the end of the
relationship. The woman told law officers that Feneziani had a hot
temper and was prone to violence.
So far, investigators say they have found no evidence that
Feneziani planned to actually dive an aircraft into Wall Street.
But, given the fact that he's a commercial airline pilot, as well
as an officer in the Air National Guard's 107th Air Refueling Wing,
they said they couldn't simply dismiss the accusation.
CNN reports the woman also told authorities that Feneziani was
removed from ANG flight status "because of his inability to control
his anger during pilot training" at an Oklahoma air base last year.
There was no immediate confirmation on that aspect of the
allegation from either the New York Air National Guard or the
