BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Channel 9 spoke with the airport maintenance worker Friday who stopped a man as he boarded an American Airlines jet that was undergoing maintenance.

The 22-year-old flight student jumped a security fence at the Melbourne International Airport Thursday and reached the cockpit of an empty jet before two maintenance workers stopped him, investigators said.

Melbourne airport officials said that Trinidad and Tobago native Nishal Sankat breached airport security around 1:30 a.m.

Authorities said Sankat tried to steal the airplane.

Shayne Graves confronted Sankat while he was on the plane. Graves said he didn’t hesitate to act because he thought about the 9/11 attacks.
