    JetBlue pilot Clayton Osbon, who had midair meltdown in 2012, sues airline for not recognizing erratic behavior

    Clayton Osbon claimed he had a seizure while flying a JetBlue plane in 2012, and that caused him to “hallucinate” and experience “paranoia,” a lawsuit alleges.
    He was a flight risk — and his JetBlue bosses should have noticed.

    A crazed ex-airline captain sued the airline for nearly $15 million, saying they let him pilot a Las Vegas-bound flight despite his increasingly erratic behavior on May 27, 2012.

    Before the flight out of Kennedy Airport landed, Capt. Clayton Osbon suffered a midair meltdown that sent him running through the plane screaming about terrorists and bombs.

    Osbon, 52, lost control of his bodily functions before passengers aboard the plane took him down. The flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Amarillo, Tex.

    The 16-page Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit, filed Thursday, said airline officials failed to recognize that Osbon was suffering a brain seizure caused by “a childhood traumatic head injury.”

    The effects of the decades-old incident never surfaced until the very day that Osbon lost his mind on the crowded flight, the lawsuit charged.

    “JetBlue’s failure ... imperiled Captain Osbon’s life as well as the lives of other crew members and passengers; destroyed Captain Osbon’s career and reputation (and) caused Captain Osbon national public embarrassment,” the lawsuit alleged.

    The seizure “caused him to hallucinate, and caused extreme feelings of paranoia and religious fervor,” the lawsuit continued.

    JetBlue issued a statement praising the rest of its flight crew without mentioning Osbon.

    “While we can't discuss the specifics of what happened that day due to ongoing litigation, we stand behind the heroic actions of the crew, who followed well established safety and security procedures both before and during the flight,” the airline said.

    An FBI agent’s reconstruction of that day said Osbon “did not exhibit any bizarre behavior” after arriving late for the 6:55 a.m. takeoff.

    It wasn’t until the plane was in the air that Osbon started to lose it, according to the agent’s affidavit.

    The aggravated aviator then began screaming at the air traffic controllers over the radio, speaking gibberish and sprinting up and down the aisle.

    “Pray f--ing now for Jesus Christ!” he shouted at one point before ranting about 9/11, Iraq, Iran and terrorism.

    “We’re all going down!” he later howled.

    A Texas federal judge cleared Osbon on a charge of interfering with a flight crew, ruling that he was afflicted with “severe mental disease.”

    Osbon, who was earning more than $300,000 a year, was forced to turn in his wings as part of his conditional release.
