Since it’s Friday I thought I’d close out the week with this odd bit of news from Brazil.
According to a Brazilian website, an American Airlines pilot was arrested yesterday for reportedly losing his temper and stripping off his clothes while attempting to go through airport security in Salvador, Brazil.
From the Brazil Dispatch:
An American Airlines pilot landed in a Brazilian jail Thursday after he stripped down to his tighty whities when an airport metal detector would not stop beeping at him.
Authorities arrested him and charged him with “contempt”, and as a result, American flight 238 from Salvador to Miami was cancelled.
I found two versions of the story online.
One in Portuguese: American pilot is held to be naked at airport in Bahia
And one in English: American Airlines Pilot Lands in Brazil Jail
A big hat tip and thanks to Eloy the Mestre das Milhas!
Have a great weekend!!
