    A Delta Air Lines pilot locked himself out of the plane's cockpit on a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon, which forced the first officer to make and emergency landing at the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

    "About half way through [the 2.5-hour flight] there seemed to be some talking at the front of the plave. You could see the captain out there," Jesse Dougherty, passenger of Flight 1651, told ABC News. "There wasn't a huge panic, but some confusion."

    The MD-90 aircraft had 168 passengers on board.

    Jonathan Thalacker, passenger of Flight 1651, said that a piece of string was the source of the jammed door. Delta has yet to confirm what made the door malfunction.

    Friggin' news media hypes it like it was some kind of miracle the plane was able to land safely. There wasn't any "emergency" and no one was in any danger. The 2nd officer simply diverted to the nearest airport and made an unscheduled landing. Now if both pilots locked themselves out of the flight deck that might have been a bit of a problem. :c

    It wasn't even diverted, it landed in Vegas as scheduled.
