An US Airways flight made an emergency landing in Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday after a passenger decided to strip naked.

Passengers said it was a sight to see. Cell phone pictures taken from inside the plane showed a passenger, identified as Keith Wright from the Bronx, sitting naked in his seat near the rear of the plane.

Flight 705, bound from Charlotte to Los Angeles, was forced to make an emergency stop in Albuquerque when flight attendants failed to get the man under control.

After one of the flight attendants tried to get a response from the man and after the crew attempted to cover him up, he got physically aggressive and started flipping out. He was held down on the floor and his wrist and ankles were handcuffed.

The man had a combination of alcohol and drugs at the origin airport. Wright is now in federal custody and the flight was delayed about an hour.
