Catch Me If You Can is one of my all-time favorite movies. I never thought we’d see another Frank Abagnale, Jr. though.
A pilot has been arrested at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport for flying passenger planes for 13 years with a false licence.
The 41-year-old Swede was in the cockpit of a Corendon Airlines Boeing 737 about to take off for Ankara with 101 passengers on board when the Dutch police arrested him after a tip from the Swedish authorities.
The Turkish low-budget airline was informed in advance and had a second pilot lined up to take over the flight.
I must admit I am impressed–though this guy wasn’t clever enough to forge Pan Am checks and play doctor and lawyer on the side. Full story here.
