A woman who admitted to trying to open the door of a passenger plane midway through a flight from the UK to Turkey has been jailed.

Chloe Haines, 26, of High Wycombe was jailed at Chelmsford Crown Court for two years for endangering the safety of an aircraft and assaulting a member of the cabin crew.

Passengers and cabin crew fought to restrain Chloe Haines who shouted on the plane and two RAF fighter jets were scrambled to escort the plane back to Stansted Airport, Chelmsford Crown Court heard.

She also said on the plane 'I'm going to kill you all'. 

She later said that she 'blacked out and didn't really remember what happened' after mixing alcohol with medication, said prosecutor Michael Crimp.

The 26-year-old admitted at an earlier hearing to endangering the safety of an aircraft and assaulting cabin crew member Charley Coombe on the Jet2 flight to Dalaman in Turkey on 22 June last year.

Ms Coombe suffered scratches as she tried to prevent Haines from opening the plane door.

Judge Charles Gratwicke, sentencing Haines on Wednesday, said: "Those that are trapped in the confined space of the aircraft will inevitably be distressed, frightened and petrified by the actions of those who in a drunken state endanger their lives.

"For some, it will be their worst nightmare come true."

Haines, dressed in a white shirt and black top, with her blonde hair in a ponytail, sobbed through much of the hearing.

Jet2 calculated that the incident cost them £86,000, the court heard.
