A 16-year-old boy has been arrested for planning to hijack a plane and crash it into a Hannah Montana concert!

The boy was arrested after getting off a Southwest Airlines flight from LA to Nashville, where he was supposed to continue on to Louisiana -- the location of the concert. 

The FBI said, "His stated intent was to hijack the airplane and commit suicide. He did indicate he intended to die in Louisiana. It appears he had a ticket to Louisiana." 

The boy's bag held handcuffs, duct tape and rope. The rest of us can't even sneak a NARS lip gloss through security, and they let him through with handcuffs and duct tape? 

The teen has been charged with felony terrorism and will face other state and federal charges.
