Hollywood's Very Own Pilot

When he was at the Paris Air Show Hollywood actor and pilot John Travolta said he found it easy to fly Airbus's A380 superjumbo and hoped to outdo rival Tom Cruise as a real-life Top Gun. Mr T has flown more than 5000 flight hours as a pilot; he apparently flew the world's largest airliner as a co-pilot in Australia. “I did fly that A380 you know. I was the first non-test pilot to fly that and I'm telling you it's a very easy plane to fly but technically complicated."

Easy yet complicated? Reminds me of the old adage - what's the difference between God and a pilot? God doesn't think he's a pilot.
