As if we don’t have enough to worry about these days with crazed terrorists all over the world attempting to blow us up, but now we have to deal with love-crazed pilots when we fly. A Jet-Blue pilot was taken into protective custody for psychological evaluation from Logan Airport yesterday after there were rumors he told his girlfriend that he would crash the plane if she didn’t reconcile with him. Of course, the airline refuses to corroborate the incident and merely has stated that the pilot was deemed unfit for duty and agreed to be taken for psychological and health evaluation. What would you expect them to say?
A very comforting thought when you’re boarding a plane in a few days….don’t you think?
