Fellow Passengers Speak About The Shoe Bomber

On December 22, 2001, Richard Reid – otherwise known as the Shoe Bomber- attempted to detonate his explosive-packed shoes whole aboard an American Airlines flight from Paris to Miami.

Reid was later sentenced to three life terms plus 110 years in prison without parole. In this video, fellow passengers recall what happened on the flight.
