A tale of two passengers.

I have flown from Malta to Manchester. I can’t say it was a great experience. Flying very rarely is these days but fortunately I wasn’t on the plane with this tosser. Please read the whole thing – it’s mind-bending. Here is a taste…

A drunken jet passenger was tasered by police after stripping naked on the airport tarmac – and challenging the captain to a fight.

The 52-year-old man, who had arrived in Manchester on an easyJet flight from Malta, also urinated up the side of the Terminal One building.

Video taken of the amazing incident shows the burly, bald man removing his clothes on the runway apron and posturing at the captain – before receiving a slap across the face from his female companion.

Almost makes you wish for the days of Paul Temple on flying boats with wicker chairs and a G&T served just right.

Apparently the gentleman in question has been arrested on the grounds of being suspected of being “drunk and disorderly”. I hope the magistrate doesn’t feel the need to consider this one for too long.

On the other hand this is a brilliant story.

    D+D!?

    What about “Endangering an aircraft?” Or whatever it is called nowdays?*

    Once up on a time, long ago, when I was British copper, the idea was to book the bastards for the MOST serious crime, NOT the LEAST serious.

    * And that is BEFORE all the new tripe since 11/9!

    Great story about John Wildey, Nick. Thanks! Brings back memories … of an experience I had once in a Skyhawk (and a 152), and of various movies too, including the one starring Doris Day as Julie.

  3. “They tried to control him but resorted to using a ‘dry’ Taser – where the gun is held against the target to cause shock and pain…”

    Should’ve held it there until the battery ran out…

    The fat git should be banned from boarding an aircraft for life.

    As for Mr. Wildey, what he did wasn’t just phenomenal it was miraculous. What are the odds of someone, who has never had a flying lesson in his life, actually landing a plane safely? There could so easily have been two tragic deaths that day.
