Investigations have been launched after an air hostess was filmed stripping in a jet cockpit during flight in the month of junuary 08. The captain and the co-pilot invited the woman into the cockpit during a short-haul European flight headed to the UK and requested her to strip for them. However, this was filmed by another member of the French crew and subsequently leaked onto the internet. The woman, aged in her 20s and sporting a wedding ring, removed her top and bra and allowed the crew to touch her breasts, before raising her skirt to reveal her knickers. Authorities launched an investigation in several airlines to find those responsible.
wo months since the 11 September, 2001 attacks, the event remained fresh in the minds of Americans. At John F. Kennedy Airport, American Airlines Flight 587, an Airbus A300-600R, leaves on a three hour flight to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Shortly after take-off, it encounters turbulence from a Japan Airlines Boeing B-747 that took off from the same runway 30 seconds earlier, causing it to violently tilt back and forth. The pilot repeatedly steps on the rudder back and forth to stabilize the plane, but his overuse of the rudder breaks the tail from the fuselage. Without the tail to support the aircraft, it spins out of control and crashes into Rockaway, Queens, killing all 260 people onboard and 5 on the ground.
