I guess by now you have heard of the 2 Northwest pilots getting their licenses revoked because they overshot the airport by 150 miles. Did you hear they were on their laptops and simply not paying attention to the radio , the plane or any other aspect of flying. A flight attendant called the cabin to ask when they were landing and they realized they screwed up....

Military jets were about to be scrambled for this plane... Doesn;'t that make you feel safe? Guess the thought of pilots playing solitaire on laptops or what ever they were doing doesnt give me a warm fuzzy.

They have the opportunity to appeal the ruling but personally I hope it sticks. I don't see these as pilots I would want to fly with. Your thoughts?

Post News, FAA revokes licenses of wayward pilots.

U.S. government regulators have revoked the licenses of the two airline pilots who flew an Airbus passenger jet past their Minneapolis destination by 150 miles last week.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday the Northwest Airlines pilots had violated numerous regulations, including failing to comply with air traffic control instructions and clearances and operating carelessly and recklessly.

The peanut gallery on Morning Joe was speculating that the guys were having sex with each other, and that's how they lost track of time. Anyone else think that's a possibility?

In his case, it would probably be true.
