Then on December 8, a man who told police he wanted to steal a jet so he could fly to Area 51 to look at aliens was arrested after he used a limo to drive through fences at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, parked on an aircraft ramp and made a bomb threat. The following night, a Delta flight from Washington, DC, to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Oklahoma City after a passenger allegedly assaulted two people.
