Pilots who overshot destination were on laptops!!!

The pilots of a commercial passenger jet that overshot its destination by 150 miles - sparking fears of a hijacking - have claimed that they were on their personal laptops and lost track of time.

Air traffic controllers and dispatchers attempted to contact Flight 188, a Northwest Airlines Airbus A380 with 144 passengers travelling between San Diego and Minneapolis, for more than an hour with the plane at 37,000 feet.

Some reports had suggested that Richard Cole, the first officer, and Timothy Cheney, the captain, may have fallen asleep during the October 21 flight, a claim which they denied. More...

  4. Fight over air-hostess between pilots and cabin crew on Air India flight!!!
