NWA: The Cincinnati Bengals of the airline world.


#1

[Sidenote for damiross and others who may not be privy to sports information: The Bengals are the NFL team with the most arrests over the last season or two.]

Just in the past few weeks we had the NW “employee” sharing his love juice with the passenger next to him, the pilot cursing at passengers (or at least AROUND them; the details still seem sketchy), now we have the pilot driving the wrong way on the interstate in Detroit near the Canadian border…allegedly high on cocaine.

Northwest is Finally #1!! :smiley:

With humble apoligies to Jerry Garcia

Flyin’ that Plane, high on cocaine,
Walt Dinalko, better cross check your speed.
Waypoints ahead, contrail behind,
And you know that Citation just crossed my mind.

These GE engines makes it on time,
Leaves K-M-S-P ‘bout a quarter to nine,
Hits Detroit Metro at seventeen two,
At a quarter to ten you know it’s drivin’ again.

Flyin’ that Plane, high on cocaine,
Walt Dinalko, better cross check your speed.
Waypoints ahead, contrail behind,
And you know that Citation just crossed my mind.

Traffic ahead, the TCAS just said,
Take my advice you’d be better off dead.
ATC’s man’s sleeping, Critter One niner two is
On the wrong flightlevel and headed for you.

Flyin’ that Plane, high on cocaine,
Walt Dinalko, better cross check your speed.
Waypoints ahead, contrail behind,
And you know that Citation just crossed my mind.

Trouble with you is the trouble with me,
Got two radar screens but we still don’t see.
Crossing 8000 for five, no time for a dive,
The flight attendant screams as the annunciator gleams

Flyin’ that Plane, high on cocaine,
Walt Dinalko, better cross check your speed.
Waypounts ahead, contrail behind,
And you know that Citation just crossed my mind.

And you know that Citation just crossed my mind.

Say “BUH-Bye” to the flyin’ career!
“Hey Maverick, you got the number for that truck driving school we saw on TV - Truckmasters I think it was? I think I’m gonna learn how to be a truck driver.”

You guys are getting pretty good at this. :smiley:

The really sad thing here is that enrolling in Truckmasters would just be a waste of his money. Ain’t a state in the U.S. gonna give him a commercial drivers license.

If he was a really good pilot with NWA, perhaps they might retain him as a dispatcher or maybe a baggage handler. But I’d advise him to practice working on his “ya want fries wit dat?” line. If he gets really good with that, he could work his way up to the drive-thru where he could work the radio! :smiling_imp:

Maybe that jerk who was complaining about ATC over the air during the Allegiant emergency in Orlando will hire him. I thought he had a fleet.
