Yet another person was caught on camera refusing to wear a mask on a flight, which has become a common problem for airlines amid COVID-19. 

In a video recorded by another passenger aboard the American Airlines flight, a woman can be seen yelling at crew members and passengers. 

According to the man who recorded the ordeal, the woman refused to wear her mask properly during a flight from Charlotte, N.C. to Washington, D.C. on January 10. 

The disgruntled woman reportedly gave a speech about "tyranny" to other passengers and can be heard in the video saying, "If we don’t stand up, it’s only going to get worse."

Moments later, a man is seen stepping in to try to calm the woman down. 

"Federal Air Marshals intervened to help deescalate and maintain control of the situation for the duration of the flight," said Derek Walls of American Airlines in a statement to Narcity. 

As soon as the flight landed, police came onboard the aircraft and escorted the woman off the plane. 

Passengers can be heard cheering as she's ushered out of the cabin. 

Walls shared with Narcity that the woman is being placed on American Airlines' internal refusal list pending an investigation.
