Amarillo, TX - The JetBlue pilot who forced an emergency landing in Amarillo last week made his first court appearance Monday morning.
Captain Clayton Osbon was in federal court Monday morning for his first hearing in front of a judge.
Osbon was read his rights from Judge Clinton Averitte and when asked if he understood he simply said "yes your honor."
Osbon's wife and co-workers from the airline were inside the courtroom to show their support.
Osbon will be in court again Thursday morning when a preliminary exam and detention hearing will take place.
For now, the judge says Osbon will remain in law enforcement custody and no bond is set.
