There are questions, after a passenger broke into the cockpit of an American Airlines jet.

The incident yesterday happened at an airport in Honduras and damaged the plane as it was boarding for a flight to Miami. The man ran down the jetway and into the cockpit the did some damage. He tried to jump out an open window, but pilots stopped him.

The plane, carrying 121 passengers and six crew had to be replaced due to the damage, so the flight was delayed until the new one got there.

The attacker was arrested.
