French man poses as pilot, enters cockpit on US Airways flight

Posted: Updated:

A French man was arrested after the FBI says he impersonated a pilot and actually made it into the cockpit of a US Airways jet at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Investigators say 61-year old Philippe Jernnard was wearing what looked like an Air France uniform with Air France logos and had Air France employee credentials.
    
Air France says they were all fake.
    
Investigators say Jernnard was first noticed when he got upset because he was denied a seat in business class, then breached security and talked his way into a jump seat in the cockpit.

Jernnard is in jail on a $1million bond.

FOX4 spoke with Aviation Expert Denny Kelly on the situation.
