A drunk British tourist who screamed 'you are all going to f***ing die' and was restrained by fellow passengers after she tried to open two of the plane's doors at more than 30,000ft has been jailed for two years today.
Two RAF fighter jets were scrambled to escort the plane into Stansted after Chloe Haines, 26, of High Wycombe, forced the pilot to turn back just 45 minutes into a flight to Turkey in June last year.
She was sentenced to two years in prison at Chelmsford Crown Court today after pleading guilty to endangering the safety of the plane and to assaulting cabin crew member Charley Coombe.
Miss Haines was accused of causing 'absolute chaos in the sky' after she tried to open one of the emergency exits at more than 30,000ft.
In her drunken rampage she also sent one flight attendant 'flying across the plane', abusing people on board who made a citizen's arrest by pinning her down in the aisle as she screamed: 'I'm going to f**king kill everyone, you are all going to f**king die'.'
Two RAF Typhoon fighters were then arrived at either side of the aircraft and guided it back into Stansted, with the jets creating a sonic boom that could be heard for across the east of England.
She was arrested on the Tarmac and Jet2 sent the Costa Express worker a bill for £85,000 because of her 'extremely disruptive behaviour'.
