"if you look to the left side of the cabin, you can see the beautiful...THUD."

There is an airplane in the air, RIGHT NOW, with a dead pilot. Interestingly, my first thought was, "Continental still flies?"

I wonder what they did with the body for the rest of the flight? Do they leave him in the cockpit or strap him into a seat next to some schmuck in economy? Rigor mortis sets in after about three hours (some fascinating info about rigor mortis out there on them interwebs), so did they haul him off the plane in the seated position? So many questions . . .

According to ABC,
"His body was removed from the cockpit to the crew rest area"

My dad worked for Continental and today has been what he'd call "the toliet is backed up at work" day.
Earlier on CBS they did a piece on children getting lost on planes and being at the wrong destination now this...next up no government bailout funds...

This is a definate shitty day for the big meatball...

Um...happens all the time or what?

"In 2007, another Continental pilot died at the controls after becoming ill during a flight from Houston to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It landed safely with a co-pilot at the controls after being diverted to McAllen, Texas."
