Via The Sun:
AN airline pilot was arrested in a jet’s cockpit minutes before take-off yesterday on suspicion of being DRUNK.
Hundreds of stunned passengers watched police march the 44-year-old American first officer off the Boeing 777.
The United Airlines flight to San Francisco was delayed at Heathrow for almost three hours while a replacement co-pilot was found.
What an idiot. Forgetting about the safety concern for a second (although that’s the most important aspect), what an easy way to screw up your career without hopes of ever having another job in the industry.
At the same time I almost feel sorry for this guy. He made one dumb decision that’ll totally ruin the rest of his life, no doubt. I guess that’s better than a decision that ruins his life and lives of 300 other people….
