An armed AirTran Airways captain and federal flight deck officer
was arrested in the cockpit of his aircraft on Thursday at Las
Vegas' McCarran International airport after a screener said the
pilot smelled of alcohol as he passed a checkpoint.
Hot on the heels of the story of the drunk and armed AirTran
pilot/federal flight deck officer getting arrested in the cockpit
after a TSA screener smelled alcohol, another pilot was arrested
last week in the Germany for failing a breathalizer test.
