A RAGING Jet2 passenger who stormed the cockpit screaming "I'm going to kill everyone" as she tried to open the plane door has today pleaded guilty.
Chloe Haines, 26, assaulted a member of cabin crew and had to be restrained by staff and terrified passengers on the flight from Stansted to Turkey.
Two RAF Typhoon fighters were scrambled to intercept the Airbus 321 around 45 minutes into its flight after Haines went berserk.
The Costa worker went for the exit door-causing the flight to turn around and head back to Stansted.
Haines wept today as she admitted endangering the safety of an aircraft and assault by beating at Chelmsford Crown Court.
She denied a charge of drunkenness on an aircraft-despite there being "no question that she was drunk"-and it was left to lie on file.
The court heard how Haines was travelling with her wheelchair-bound grandmother when she flew into a rage during the flight in June this year.
'YOU'RE ALL GOING TO F *** ING DIE'
She tried opening the doors and screamed: "I'm going to f *** ing kill everyone, you are all going to f *** ing die".
As she continued her rampage, cabin crew member Charley Coombe was scratched as she tried to calm the boozed-up passenger down.
One former bouncer tackled her to the ground after she sent a cabin crew worker "flying across the plane".
Dramatic photos showed Haines lying down in the aisle before she was arrested on suspicion of assault and endangering an aircraft.
She was also slapped with a bill for £ 85,000 by Jet2.
The court was told Haines had been sentenced with a community order just 17 days before the fracas for a similar offence.
Oliver Saxby QC, for Haines, said the "troubled" passenger was now engaged in an Alcoholics Anonymous program.

He added: "There was a loss of composure and loss of control."
Haines, from High Wycombe, Bucks, was bailed to appear at the same court on January 24 for sentencing.
Under her bail conditions, she is unable to travel from a UK airport.
