Greek pilots multitasking?

Three Sixty Degrees

We know the airline industry is in a bit of a squeeze, but pilots cleaning their own windows? Full marks then to this Aegean Air pilot parked in the stalls at Athens Eleftherios Venizelos airport, in full gaze of the caff. Risking a new outbreak of British ‘planespotters’ – and a spell in Korydallos (the local jail), I whipped out the camera.

This heroic pilot was sipping a drink – spotted a blot on his cockpit window, and swiftly removed it with a bottle of water (hopefully), and a tissue. Bravo.
