After an American Airlines flight landed in Kansas, Edward Foster, 49, accused the pilot, who was also a passenger on the flight, of blocking the aisle and being rude as the other flyers were trying to disembark.
After they got off the flight, Foster was caught on CCTV footage following the pilot through the concourse.
He tried to take a photo of the pilot's ID at which point the man turned around and swiped the phone out of his hands.
Foster, visibly angered, then went on to shove the man before chasing him out of the terminal building.
This comes just weeks after a man was dragged off an overbooked United Airlines flight by staff.
