Drunk Pilot Arrested After Passing Out in Cockpit

Recommended Posts

A Sunwing pilot was arrested Saturday after being found intoxicated in a plane he was about to maneuver out of Calgary airport in western Canada.

The 37-year-old man was found drunk shortly after 7:00 am (1200 GMT) in the cockpit of the plane he was supposed to pilot to Cancun, Mexico.

Before the flight was schedule to take off, the crew and other airline staff noticed the pilot's behaving strangely before he fainted in the cockpit. They then alerted the authorities.

The pilot was subsequently escorted out of the plane and was placed in jail, police said.

The authorities said the pilot had more than three times the authorized amount of alcohol (0.08 percent in Canada) in his body two hours after his arrest.

The pilot was charged with being in control of an aircraft while being impaired, and faces other charges.

A Sunwing spokeswoman thanked the crew for handling the "very unfortunate matter," according to local media.

The flight took off with another pilot maneuvering the Boeing 737 plane with 99 passengers and six crewmembers, including the pilot who was charged.




ONLY in liberrhoid lalaland is this acceptable behavior.

How bout your Tramp????

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes,

OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart

—you know, if you're a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if,

like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the

smartest people anywhere in the world—it's true!—but when you're a

conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that's

why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went

there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my

like credentials all the time, because we're a little disadvantaged—but

you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would

have been so easy, and it's not as important as these lives are (nuclear

is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the

power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of

what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?),

but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it

used to be three, now it's four—but when it was three and even now, I

would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because,

you know, they don't, they haven't figured that the women are smarter

right now than the men, so, you know, it's gonna take them about

another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

Transcribed from this video, if anyone is interested in deciphering in real time. The video is from a year ago. Why are people just now figuring out he’s not all there?

I think all 737's should be grounded until a drunk pilot detector law can be proposed by congress, a unit designed by Raytheon, installed by Halliburton, tested by Ted Kennedy and signed off by Elliot Spitzer.
