Good luck flying Ken! 

Dot, thanks for the update and link.  (note: right click on link to open a new tab or link leaves B'net)

I'm thinking with this situation being called "medical" the public may never know what actually happened with the pilot. 

From link:  JetBlue announced on Friday that the crew would not be speaking to the media either, a stance that Osbon's wife praised in the release.

I was thinking casually about the idea that he may have been fine on the ground, but once in the air, with the pressure differences, there was a glitch in his biology somewhere, like how some people can throw clots or whatever high up in the air.

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

JetBlue pilot's outburst: Could side effects from medications be at fault?

Side effects from sleep and antidepressant medications – or perhaps even a nutritional supplement – are possible areas of investigation as officials probe the mystery of a JetBlue pilot's erratic behavior aboard a flight Tuesday, medical experts say.

Interesting article about commercial pilots and medication.  The article does seem to indicate the FAA is checking into the JetBlue pilot's medical records.

From article:  Finally, there is the question of nutritional supplements. According to his Twitter account, Osbon, in his spare time, was moonlighting as a "regional director" to help market a nutritional supplement aimed at weight loss. Could he have been affected by it?
