"There's a bomb on the plane! A bomb on the plane," the man said in the video. "If she takes me off, I'll blow the f***ing plane up!"

As soon as Spirit Airlines Flight 404 took off Friday morning from FLL, almost immediately the flight crew reported a problem of a man throwing stuff at passengers, screaming about enemies and listening to no one.

As babies were crying and people were screaming, the flight crew tried to keep everyone calm on the plane.

An hour and a half later when the plane landed in Atlanta, authorities came on board and calmly asked about his bags, then forcibly pulled him off.

Spirit Airlines has not commented on why the captain of that plane did not land the aircraft as soon as he was informed of the situation.
