Drinking and driving is a horrible, harmful choice.

Drinking while flying 141 travelers in an aircraft? That’s even worse.

Two pilots, aged 45 and 35, were jailed on Saturday for presumed intoxication prior to a flight from Glasgow, Scotland, to Newark, New Jersey.

The flight was postponed 10 hours while United Airlines looked for pilots who might change them. Obviously, Glasgow Airport has some great bars, since the very same thing occurred there a month ago there with 2 Canadian pilots for Air Transat.

There have actually been lots of other current cases of pilots striking the sauce. In March, an American Airlines flight was canceled at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after the co-pilot had difficulty with his cockpit seat. Ends up his blood-alcohol level was two times the legal limitation .

Then, in April, a JetBlue pilot was jailed after finishing a flight from Orlando to Kennedy Airport in New York with 151 guests on board. He blew a. 11 in a test of his blood-alcohol material, which is over the legal limitation for driving a vehicle.

Luckily, no one was injured. That still does not make the concept of an intoxicated pilot flying an aircraft any less frightening.

The Associated Press added to this report.

Gadd, who was sexually mistreated 4 years back, invests a big part of his program, referred to as a “individual and deeply extreme expedition of masculinity and stress and anxiety”, working on a treadmill.

His program analyzes who he is and exactly what it implies to be a male.
