Flight hacker claims questioned by cyber experts

A cyber security expert is reported to have told an FBI agent he was able to control a plane engine from his seat after hacking the on-board computer system.

Chris Roberts was apparently able to make the plane "climb" and "move sideways" while on board as a passenger.

Other cyber experts have questioned whether he actually did - and whether it is even possible.

Ben Bland reports.
