Southwest Pilots Fired For Flying Naked
Pilot, Copilot Fight To Get Jobs Back

POSTED: 4:53 p.m. CDT April 25, 2003

DALLAS -- Two Southwest Airlines pilots are now jobless after they allegedly flew a Boeing 737 without wearing their uniforms, or much of anything else, for that matter.

According to the company, the incident happened months ago, but that it released the pilot and copilot after an investigation.

One of the men reportedly claims that he removed his uniform because coffee was spilled on it, and that a flight attendant bringing paper towels and soda water to the cockpit was a witness.


Southwest won't elaborate, but a spokesman said the matter is an internal one that is under appeal.

However, some passengers say they can't imagine any situation that would explain the need to disrobe in flight.

"Spilling coffee and two pilots flying naked, that doesn't add up to me," Clarence Hill said.

Another passenger echoed that remark.

"They did it once, they'll probably do it again," Sergio Mendoza Jr. said. "There has to be a reason why they were flying like that, too."

According to the FAA, there are no rules against flying naked, although pilots do have to be dressed for all contingencies and emergencies when flying below 10,000 feet.

Whatever the reason or details, Southwest has deemed this particular incident inappropriate.

Meantime, the pilots are reportedly trying to get their jobs back.

well, if they were naked and flying above 10k feet, then i guess the airlines' stipulation can actually be brought up for interpretation. i hope they have a hard time getting their jobs back, that they sue, and that it all ends up on court tv so we can watch the proceedings. i think it would be highly entertaining to see how attorneys loop this one (no pun intended). ;)

lol...you know dl, people are just so fucking hard to please...
im sayin' ;) it must be a bitch to be a pilot... flying for hours... if they want to get naked to keep entertained i dunno why they shouldnt be allowed.

i was always taught to not be ashamed of my body... and i dont think others should get so embarassed by someone being naked.

... then again i was raised by a bunch of hippies and watched far too much real sex on hbo as a child. :angel:

i think it's a danger to air safety to have a couple of loose cocks in the cock pit :D

DD, did you intend all the sexual innuendo in this post? ;)

Nude airlines... you'd be safe from fundamentalist hijackers, at any rate.
