PHILADELPHIA -

After learning that a man posing as an Air France pilot at Philadelphia International Airport Wednesday night entered the cockpit of a plane, passengers have one question: How could something like this happen?

FOX 29's Chris O'Connell spoke with passengers traveling in and out of the airport Thursday. We told them about the incident, which was first reported on FOX 29, and all had the same reaction.

"He's not even a registered pilot," passenger Mike Hunnewell of Boston said. "That's more than uncomfortable."

Watch the FOX 29 News at 10 p.m. for continuing coverage on this story.
