Northwest airliner misses destination by 150miles

A Northwest passenger flight from San Diego, California, (Go Chargers!) to Minneapolis, Minnesota, overshot its destination airport by about 150 miles Wednesday.

The cause??

The pilots said they were in a heated argument about airline policies…or sleeping with someones wife

Air traffic controllers lost radio communication with the Northwest Airlines Airbus A320, carrying 147 passengers and an unknown number of crew, when it was flying at 37,000 feet, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. There was no communication with Flight 188 for more than an hour as it approached the airport, the board said.

So when they did finally get in touch with them, the pilots answers were so vague that they thought they had a hijacking situation.


Well whatever it turns out to be, I’m pretty sure these pilots will be joining the unemployment line very soon.
