The first time I boarded a plane it was on its way to Dallas to catch a connecting flight to Phoenix. Golf trip numero uno for the kid and I was riding solo. A touch nervous but more excited than anything, and ready to play 36 basically for a week straight. I remember when I first got settled in my seat, there was an officer speaking with the flight attendant and the pilot, so it sparked my attention. Nothing appeared to come out of it as well took off smoothly, but for 45 actual seconds, it felt like 4 minutes and all outcomes were being considered. That story doesn’t even compare to this…
Source: A pilot for an American Airlines subsidiary was arrested on murder charges just minutes before he was set to takeoff in a plane full of travellers. Christian R. Martin, who flew for PSA Airlines, was getting ready for a flight from Louisville to North Carolina over the weekend when cops swept into Louisville International Airport and busted him. The 51-year-old was accused of killing a married couple and their neighbour. Martin moved from Christian County after the slayings and was living in Raleigh at the time of the indictment, a jail spokesman said. He is being held without bond on murder, arson and burglary charges along with tampering with physical evidence. Martin’s jail mugshot shows him wearing a pilot’s uniform.
Police said the case dates back to 2015, when Calvin Phillips, 59, was found shot to death in the cellar of his home. The bodies of Pamela Phillips, 58, and their neighbour, Edward Dansereau were found a few miles away in a cornfield inside her burned car.
What a psycho. If your company runs background checks on your employees, make sure it’s not just when they walk in on their first day. Always a good idea to check back in on how the bail budget is going. For now, smell ya, Christian Martin.
