Man Describes Videotaping Fists Flying On Plane At Burbank Airport

BURBANK ( — It wasn’t the plane that was flying, but a pair of fists.  Cell phone video of a fight that erupted on a Southwest  plane that had just landed at Hollywood Burbank Airport Sunday morning.

The flight arrived from Dallas at around 11 a.m.

Michael Krause from Newbury Park heard the commotion and started rolling. He says two men began wrestling and throwing punches. During the scuffle, a woman tried to pull away the man on top off the man she was with.

“Everyone was de-planing then all heck broke loose,” Krause said.

In the video you see a Southwest flight attendant trying to break up the fight but when the man on the bottom suddenly picks up the smaller man, they fall onto the seats in front of them and right on top of the woman and the flight attendant.

The punches continued until other passengers were able to stop the attack.  Burbank Police say one of the men was arrested for assault and battery. It’s unclear what started the fight or if they knew each other. One person was injured but refused treatment and continued on their journey, police said.

Krause showed the video to his son, who posted it on Twitter. The video got a lot of attention and Krause believes the flight attendant deserves some too.

“She was running down the aisle toward danger and then she got trapped. She did a wonderful job, God bless her and I hope she’s OK.”

    Idiots—all OBOLABOTS.

  2. Does not seem like beeing a flight attendant is a lot of fun anymore, I guess the same can be said for flying.

  3. Blacks. Figures. Slow evolution for these sub-humans.

  4. Some people, meh!

  5. Pretty sad commentary on today’s diverse culture in the good old USA.

  6. As I suspected, they were ‘tall”

    1. Of course… LOL!!

    2. Tim Cooper says:

      I love that Jackie Gleason line…”You sounded taller on the radio” 🙂

  7. Advice – stay away, far away – less interaction, the happier you’ll be…..

    1. Indeed. Around clacks, never relax…

  8. Wow, I am stunned.

  9. Bob She says:

    There is something wrong with black people

    1. Yes, indeed there is something wrong with these people. Poor impulse control, difficulty with logic and rationality and low IQ. A very dangerous combination.

  10. Time to SUE SOUTHWEST! That’s how you make money today. Be a complete jerk on an airline and then sue them.

  11. It looked like it could have been 2 of Obama’s sons.

  12. Why is it Blacks are 13% of the population but involved in 80% of these public incidents of violence?

  13. John Jupiter says:

    Tiggers,,,, always causing Nrouble

  14. Ron Traguer says:

    Wait, let me guess, black people.

  15. Notice that these stupid fights usually involve Black men and Black women.

    In our high schools, it is often Black teenagers who fight and destroy property.

  16. Obama supporters for sure!
