Funnies Flashback


WE’VE trawled through the TD Window Seat archives to give you a blast from the past. Here’s some gems from 16 Oct 2014:

A ForMEr Cathay Pacific pilot has pleaded guilty to unlawfully entering the secure area of an airport, with a court in Hawaii hearing that he wore his former uniform and ID badge in order to bypass security at Honolulu Internatio­nal Airport.

Joshu Osmansk departed CX in 2012, but apparently hung onto his Cathay Pacific uniform.

He told the court he wore the outfit at HNL “so that I could cut the line and keep my shoes on while going through Honolulu Airport security”.

According to Hawaii News Now, the hearing followed a longrunnin­g investigat­ion by the FBI after a tip-off from a member of the public.

The incident could earn him up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to US$250,000.
