Airline staff face probe
Rowdy airline workers are at the centre of a storm after they were caught on camera carrying out pranks.
Ryanair staff at the Pr e s t w i c k Ai r p o r t maintenance depot were filmed suspended 15ft in the air on a cherrypicker, while another was bound to a table with shrink wrap.
And a crude slogan was daubed on the tail fin of a Boeing 747 jet by workers using masking tape.
The antics took place just yards from planes, although there is no suggestion that passengers or crew were at any risk because of workers’ actions.
Insiders say some staff act like they are on the “wildest stag- do ever” while working at the Ayrshire depot.
Footage also shows workers drawing on the faces of colleagues with marker pens.
Tory MP Steve Double, who sits on the Commons Transport Select Committee, has demanded a probe into the antics, carried out while vital safety checks were supposed to be under way.
The Civil Aviation Authority said: “If we have evidence an organisation we regulate is not complying with safety rules we will investigate.”
The Health and Safety Executive confirmed they are making enquiries.
