Behind the Cockpit Door

posted by on February 3 at 8:37 AM


An investigation has been launched after a video of a topless French air stewardess performing a sexy striptease for the captain while the plane was flying was leaked on to the internet. Despite the plane being in the air - and with several hundred passengers presumably blissfully unaware of what is going on - the sexy cabin attendant removes her bra and lets the captain and co-pilot get hands on.

I would assume that this kind of thing happens all the time—piloting a commercial jet is like being a bus driver on a robot bus. But why people anyone would allow themselves to be filmed in this situation is beyond me.

Oh, no wait, I remember why they do it: They’re idiots. All the better for us.

The Daily Mail has more info, and photos with captions like, “holding pattern, in-flight entertainment, and get ready for takeoff.

Beats snapping the dorito bag for the crumb slide in traffic.

I thought the whole point of exhibitionism was that there had to be a risk of getting caught?

We now know the real reason pilots insisted on strengthening the flight deck door.

There is an incredibly hot, sweaty (almost X-rated) French AIDS PSA commercial out there somewhere featuring two young hairless pilots in an airliner bathroom, that I cannot seem to find this morning.

But this reminds me. Of that. Commercial.

Don't believe the article, it wasn't that sexy.

Here's the video:

Great counter to pilots going to sleep -

And the French guys in the cabin crew were very smiley and happy looking.

Saucy tarte de Paris, yes, oh those French.

Now fast forward to the hotel room after the flight ended ..... Want that video.

Engage flaps. Rudder Hard Left. Three Point Landing? We'd better get you leveled out before those babies stall.

Perhaps the captain simply like fresh milk with his coffee.

What's The Stranger doing citing conservative tabloid bluster rag "The Daily Mail" as though it’s news?

Pilots and Stewardesses flirt in the air! STOP THE PRESS!

The Daily Mail calls out the French for being nothing more than horny irresponsible bastards. OMG WHO KNEW! Thanks for pointing that out Daily Mail! The British are *SO* superior to the French!

Jesus Seattle is a small city.
