A Heated Discussion


A couple of Northwest Airlines (Delta) pilots had what they referred to as a "heated discussion" on a flight from San Diego to Minneapolis-St. Paul and managed to fly 150 miles past the airport and eat up another one hour of flight time.

Apparently the Denver Center (which is really in Longmont) tried calling them by radio for over an hour without any response.

Was it a lover's quarrel?

Was it a lover's tryst at 30,000 miles up?

Was it the "Six Mile Club" for pilots?

If it was an argument was it about the differences of Fox News vs. CNN or MSNBC?

Could it have been over the different proposals on health care?

Funding for Abortions?

A woman's right to choose?

Which is a better truck Ford's or Chevy's?

Or maybe they were checking the inside of their eyeballs?

Maybe they were doing some high altitude meditation?

I am sure that we will never know.

The only thing that I am sure of is that they both should be fired before they kill themselves and a flight full of people.
