Houston, we have a problem

On a six-hour domestic flight from Los Angeles to New York last week, an American Airlines pilot was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas when a woman passenger refused to stop singing Whitney Houston's hit song I Will Always Love You.

The unpopular solo began shortly after take-off but quickly became too much for passengers and staff, reports the Daily Mail.

Airport spokesman Joe McBride told WBTV: "The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew.

"There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued her, put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane."

But this doesn't entirely tally with a video shot by a passenger, which clearly shows the woman still singing the 1990s pop song as she was being escorted from the plane.

The woman was interviewed and later released without charge.
