American Airlines Mechanic Who Sabotaged Flight Linked to Possible Terrorist Organization

American Airlines mechanic Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, who was charged in September with sabotaging a flight to Nassau, Bahamas back in July, was denied bond by a federal judge on Wednesday, Sept. 17, after being accused of having links to a terrorist organization, the Miami Herald reported.

Alani had apparently sabotaged the plane by blocking the air data module (ADM) system, which measures speed, pitch, and altitude of a plane.
