YOU ARE NOW FREE TO WET YOUR PANTS

The co-pilot on a trans-Atlantic flight screams for God.

are they sure he wasn't having a sexual experience?

Wait, I thought God was the co-pilot.

"This is the Captain speaking. Do we have an Exorcist on board. Please contact on of the flight attendants if you are a credentialed Exorcist."
We hope you enjoy you flight on Ole Scratch Air Lines, and pay no attention to the Co-pilot."

igloo adds exorcised "e" to "on" in previous post.

He took one look at his middle-aged nudist passengers boarding, and the rest is history.

And lol meanie.

It could have been worse. He could have taken over the PA and started singing COPACABANA

Now see if this had been a nude flight and the frightened passengers had wanted to wet their pants, they couldn't have could they?

It would have looked like a sprinkler system going off.

Years ago on a flight from Orlando to Atlanta when the pilot and co-pilot kept taking turns coming out of the cockpit and crawling over a row of passengers to look at the left wing, I developed a method of handling in flight irregularities:
1. Push the call button.
2. Order another drink.
C. Repeat until problem is resolved.

fivver, they just wanted to make sure it was still there.

I'll bet that later, if and when the conveniently omitted name, exact words, and - dare I say it - ethnicity of the copilot come out, the story will seem a bit different.

He figured that, since he was a lot closer to Him, God might just answer him this time.

Poor guy -- he picked a bad time to have his nervous breakdown.

In another article related to the same topic, it says what the captain is supposed to do if the co-pilot is incapacitated in any way:


After his co-pilot's removal, regulations would have required the captain to don his oxygen mask and land at "the nearest suitable aerodrome," said Yvan-Miville Deschênes, a former flight controller.

"It's standard procedure. When there's only one person left in the cockpit, he puts on an oxygen mask in case the cabin depressurizes," he said. "Continuing to London would have been a security breach."


This article has more detail on the "situation":

Since we're not traumatized enough....


Expat's linky.

It was just his 19th nervous breakdown...

lear aches anybody?

Makes sense, since God lives in Ireland.

She enjoys a pint every now and again.

This explains it.

..."he wanted to talk to God ... that the plane was low on fuel," recalled Robson.

He wanted God to fill him up.

Cheese, thanks for the excellent laugh!!

Sounds to me kinda like this guy was going through pressure sickness or something - kinda like what can happen when you go deep in a submarine.

I'm also curious as to why First Class passengers were given 20 euros for food while Economy passengers only got 15. Do they think folks in Economy save their pennies by eating less? If it were a hotel room, I could see the discrepancy. But food? Especially at airport prices.

Sounds like they needed Otto Pilot. And don't call me Shirley.

Suppose the passengers were thrilled about having a raging lunitic dumped on them?

Passenger: Oh, mam, I speak derange.

He obviously ate the Air Canada food. I always feel like I'm dying when I do that.

*claps for Layzee!*

I usually have the same sort of meltdown, but it happens in the airport when they tell me my flight has been delayed for the fifth time.

I willing to bet many passengers suddenly found god during that incident.

Diva, as a frequent coach passenger, I wondered the same thing - because they're in first class it costs more for them to be inconvenienced? Or they're (not thier or there ;) ) time is worth more??

"Or they're (not thier or there ;) )" *snork* @ belle. :-)

I asked a couple of coworkers and they seemed to think the compensation difference was fine. Hm.

Maybe this was a rave version of Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take The Wheel"

(wishes people wouldn't share their near miss airplane stories two days before she's to scheduled to fly again)

Gulp!

I just wanted to say good luck... we're all counting on you.

(and don't call me Shirley)

Well..
