Have you ever wanted to know more about the people piloting your airplane?
Be careful what you wish for.
On my flight to Chicago yesterday, I sat next to a pilot who was dead heading back home. He was especially chatty, so I learned quite a bit about this life and his schedule. And his criminal record.
You heard me.
Back when he was flying cargo planes, he and his co-pilot were arrested for trafficking cocaine in the Carribean. The white stuff was hidden in the cockpit but he said it was already on the plane when they came aboard.
They were detained for three weeks in a Dominican prison before their lawyers cleared up the ‘misunderstanding.’ He seemed most upset that his tann faded during his incarceration.
