Drunk passenger wanted to fly aircraft

By Staff

Egyptian security men boarded an aircraft at Cairo international airport and forced out a drunk Gulf passenger who insisted on flying the plane, a Saudi newspaper reported on Friday.

The passenger from a Gulf Arab country entered the cabin room and told the pilot he wanted to fly the aircraft after it landed in Cairo from Qatar, the Arabic language daily Kabar said in a report from the Egyptian capital.

“The pilot asked the 44-year-old passenger to leave the aircraft but he refused and insisted on flying it,” it said.

"The pilot then radioed the security men who boarded the aircraft and carried the drunk passenger out,” it added without indentifying the passenger or the flight.
