A 16-year-old boy was arrested after he briefly took control of a small plane during a short commercial flight over western Alaska, authorities said.
The teen was in the front passenger seat of the Piper Cherokee Six on a recent Yute Commuter Service flight from Napakiak to Bethel ...
The flight between the two remote communities usually takes about four minutes.
The teen grabbed the aircraft controls shortly after takeoff, causing the “plane to enter a steep climb and then a dive toward the ground,” Alaska State Troopers said.
A woman sitting behind the teen grabbed him around the neck, pulling him away from the controls, authorities said. The pilot stabilized the aircraft and returned to Napakiak.
An agent for the regional airline contacted the village public safety officer to detain the teen. He slipped away before the officer could take him into custody, but was arrested the next day in Bethel. ...
Interfering with the duties of a flight crew is a federal offence.
The aircraft model used in this flight does not have a mechanism to lock out passenger flight controls, said Keith Henthorn, the airline’s business manager.
The airline will continue to allow passengers to sit in the front seat, he said.
And they will only stop this when someone dies
It's possible the pilot didn't brief the SLF ('self-loading freight') very well, but nevertheless the boy's clearly an idiot and as there's no way to administer IQ tests to passengers before flight I'm afraid this kind of incident is going to happen, if very rarely.
Thought it was an Aeroflot Flight 593 job, where the pilot let his teenage son sit at the controls and then was killed with all on board when it crashed after Sonny disengaged the autopilot.
I remember this happening. Just imagine being one of the family members of the victims knowing that your loved one died due to sheer stupidity not by one, but by two idiots.Thought it was an Aeroflot Flight 593 job, where the pilot let his teenage son sit at the controls and then was killed with all on board when it crashed after Sonny disengaged the autopilot.
According to the Urban Dictionary:I saw jeans today which were advertised as 'carrot fit'.
Anyone know what the hell carrot fit is?

https://www.morato.it/res/jeans/carrott-fit.htmlTheir modern and trendy fit makes these models a bit wider on the hips and thighs and then become tighter on the legs. The unusual carrot shape, then, flatters any shape, providing a sleek and trendy look for anyone who wants to look perfect in every situation.
Thanks for that!According to the Urban Dictionary:
Or perhaps your calves are just getting bigger? Carrot Fit Trousers may as well be called Utter Wanker Trousers!Thanks for that!
I now have the feeling they've been making carrot fit trousers for a while before they've actually started using that term - I've found over the last few years that trousers seem to be made to be tighter round the calves these days!
While we're on the subject of trouserial idiocy, what is the deal with hipsters wearing trousers that are clearly two inches too short? Is it just cos they want to show off their trendy polka dot socks?Or perhaps your calves are just getting bigger? Carrot Fit Trousers may as well be called Utter Wanker Trousers!
