The new fear about flying...

Following the news about this missing Malaysian plane, and the Ethiopian plane that was diverted to Geneva a little while ago, it's safe to say that apart from terrorists, plane crashes, and fear of heights, we can now add PILOTS to the list of flying fears.

This pilot looks suspect

So you get on a plane and you're already anxious because somehow you're 30,000 feet above the Earth and you just want to get wasted relax and go to sleep, waking up shortly before you land. But now, the question of whether the pilot has gone psycho and wants to go on a random world tour comes into play.

I think airlines should make sure ALL their pilots go through rigorous background checks once a year. Their mental, emotional, spiritual well-being should be checked periodically too.

As for this plane, I was really hoping it was taken by aliens, but it looks like my mum was right when she said, "I hope some crackhead hasn't decided to recreate 'Lost' (TV show) with this plane."

  6. Please, what background check do you want them to conduct on a pilot that had been working with them for over 25 years, and a copilot of over 5 years? This is not about background checks, but the fact that there are things that happen, that we would never envisage, in all our human wisdom.

    I pray the passengers are safe.
