Pilot charged after airport arrest

11 November 2009

A United Airlines pilot was arrested at Heathrow airport following a failed breathalyser test as he was trying to board a plane carrying 135 passengers bound for Chicago. The 51-year-old man was scheduled to take charge of the transatlantic flight.

According to a Metropolitan Police official, the pilot was apprehended at noon on Monday and subsequently released on bail.

Because of the cancelled fight, the 124 passengers and 11 crew members had to be transferred to another aircraft.
