Looks like Yashar has tracked down the ID of the nut who hollered on a Delta flight, got political and yet was not removed from the plane.
His name is Jamie Finnefrock, he lives in Pennsylvania about an hour and a half away from the Allentown airport.
Finnefrock, 39, works for Rockwell Collins, a company that describes itself as:
“a pioneer in the design, production and support of innovative solutions for our customers in aerospace and defense. Our aviation electronics systems and products are installed in the flight decks of nearly every air transport aircraft in the world”
I reached Finnefrock on his cell phone; his phone’s outgoing ring indicated that he was overseas. Initially, Finnefrock sounded defeated when I told him why I was calling, then he claimed that he wasn’t the man in the video.
When I offered to show him the evidence I had, he said he has been in Israel for two weeks and there was no way it could be him. At no point did he sound shocked to receive a call from a reporter about a viral video.
Rockwell Collins is headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Rockwell Collins spokesman Josh Baynes is reviewing the video and will get back to me with comment.
Hope he gets shit-canned. UPDATE: He has been banned for life by Delta.
