There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Actually, this is what I immediately thought of when I first read the headline:

LISTEN KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

She didn't land the plane, and it was the copilot that had the breakdown, not the pilot. She just sat in the right seat and helped the pilot until they landed.

I wonder if subby has ever been to a Turkish prison...

Those people knew what they were getting into when they bought their tickets. I say, let'em crash.

Yes, we're gonna have to go right to ludicrous speed!

Ha ha ha. I love Jefferson Airplane. Best movie ever!

As the aircraft reached the middle of the Atlantic, the report said, the co-pilot began talking in a "rambling and disjointed" manner, took another nap, and then refused to buckle his seat belt or observe other safety procedures when he returned to the cockpit.

The story goes that the guy is acting crazed and belligerent, but somehow he takes two naps during the flight too. Naps?
 
2008-11-20 02:54:02 AM
The pilot then asked flight attendants to find out if any passenger was a qualified pilot. When none was found, one stewardess admitted she held a current commercial pilot's license but said her license for reading cockpit instruments had expired.

I'm almost afraid to ask why she was working as a stewardess. Surely being a pilot pays a little better.

/surely you can't be serious

Yes.

No, I've been nervous lots of times.
 
2008-11-20 07:36:27 AM
The plane? What is it?
 
2008-11-20 08:08:55 AM
It's the little room in the front of the plane where the pilots sit, but that's not important right now.

Dude, you don't post Batman pics in an Airplane thread. WTF is wrong with you?
 
2008-11-20 08:29:50 AM
Doctors from Britain and Canada on board determined that the co-pilot was confused and disoriented.

You need a doctor to confirm that? I'm no doctor, but I think I'd be able to tell if someone's sh*t was all retarded.
