APG 114 – Stowaway teen survives flight in wheel well, bees on a plane, contract piloting

A teenager from Santa Clara, CA ran onto the San Jose airport tarmac, hopped into the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines B-767, and survived the more than five-hour flight to Maui. How did he do it?

An Allegiant Air MD-80 series jet flew through a huge swarm of bees on takeoff from LAS, resulting in an emergency turn-back and landing. So, you’d like to know more? Well, it’s none of your beeswax.

A blog post in the AOPA blog describes yet another possibility for a professional piloting career: Contract Pilot. Check it out.
