High as Russian Kites
The police were called by security officers at Manchester airport last week and arrested two Russian pilots as they were about to board an Aeroflot Boeing 767. Their crime? being too drunk to fly. Suspicions were aroused by the strong smell of alcohol and the fact that the two could barely stand up. The only good news was that the aircraft had been flown to Manchester for repairs and was due to return to Moscow without passengers.
