just when you think you have seen it all…


#3

Guess he didn’t want to see the gang from Corner Gas. Ragina is the nearest big town to ‘Dog River’.


#4

I wonder how he’s liking jail?


#5

I’m sure he’ll get plenty of sex!


#6

looks like a FlightAware Squawk! issue to me.

A flight attendant angry about his work route smuggled a lighter aboard an airplane

He is accused of taking a lighter with him through the security checkpoint, authorities said.

He didn’t need to “smuggle” it, the lighter ban was rescinded a long time ago. How can you be “accused” of doing something that’s legal ?
****ing media. :imp:

Did you forget to take your meds again?


#10

Trafly, Pat is correct, they rescinded the Lighter ban about 2 months ago.


#11

Oh, it has nothing to do with the lighter ban. Just amazed that someone can summon that much anger over this subject.


#12

That ? That was nothing, you should see me when I’m really annoyed :open_mouth:

I do admit the quality of reporting (hah !) of aviation items in the popular media is a constant source of irritation. Others may not care, of course.
