I know the war on terrorism is serious
But this guy is an idiot.
Russian police have reportedly detained an Australian resident after he threatened to blow up an Aeroflot flight on its way from Tokyo to Moscow
Trying to blow up an Aeroflot plane?? I've had the misfortune to fly with Aeroflot, world's second worst commercial airline*, and the fact that the plane didn't blow up / fall out of the sky all by itself was a bloody miracle. All this guy had to do is wait around long enough.
*Worlds' worst? PIA - Pakistan International. *shudder* Only time I've been chronically airsick, from the dodgy food, the thick smoke in the cabin (back in the days when you could still smoke on aircraft) from cigars and, I kid you not, cheroots; all mixed up violently by the 0 point landing attempt by the work experience pilot. Didn't even have time to get the sick bag - just had to pull open the seat pocket and go for gold. I still feel sorry for the cleaners to this day.
Got a worse aircraft story? Lets hear it!
