The JetBlue pilot whose midair meltdown forced an emergency landing will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

A federal judge ordered the exam, which will determine whether Clayton Osbon was legally sane during a March 27 flight from JFK to Las Vegas.

It will also determine if he's competent to stand trial.

Passengers wrestled Osbon to the floor after he ran through the cabin yelling about Jesus and al-Qaida.

He's charged with interfering with a flight crew and was suspended by the airline. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
