Colin Glover British Airways pilot exposes himself while flying during long overhaul flights. Veteran pilot denies images are of him as BA bosses continue to investigate lurid images.
Colin Glover a British Airways pilot has been suspended after images surfaced of the 51 year old airline pilot pleasuring himself in the cockpit while flying at an altitude of 38 000 feet.
The suspension comes despite the veteran pilot insisting that the sordid images seemingly shot in a Boeing 777 were not that of him.
According to the UK’s sun who obtained the images, the photos reveal that of a ‘pervy airman taking lurid selfied of his aroused manhood.’ Indeed.
In one image, Glover is shown with a leg sprawled over the dashboard while the plane appears to be on autopilot with the co pilot’s seat empty.
Another image shows the British Airways pilot spreading his stocking clad legs over the joystick while revealing himself. Why decline?
An array of images shows the genitals of Colin Glover exposed in a cabin toilet while other images show an adult magazine spread on the controls and explicit playing cards scattered around the cockpit. Joker you lose!
Serial numbers on the control panel suggest the pictures were taken aboard at least two separate British Airways planes.
In a statement, British Airways confirmed on Saturday that it was probing the images and whether they were taken feet from passengers mid flight.
Told the airline: ‘We are taking these allegations extremely seriously.’
Twice-married father, Colin Glover has operated as a BA Captain since 1990 has since protested his innocence, telling British Airways bosses the pictures aren’t of him.
That said according to a report via the dailymail, the airline veteran faces being permanently grounded if they disagree.
A senior airline source said investigators would examine whether the images could have been shot in a flight simulator.
One of the serial numbers visible — GYMMB — is used on BA’s simulators. But it is also registered to a twin-engine Boeing.
The other — GVIIL — is also one of the 777 fleet used by BA.
Offered airline expert Chris Yates: ‘This is very dangerous if the plane is in mid-flight.
‘If you are flying, you can fly into serious turbulence.
‘This person is in danger of losing his aircraft and his job.’
He said it was unlikely the pictures were taken on a simulator.
Adding: ‘You can tell by the lighting it is a plane.
‘There is also more going on in the control panels than on a simulator. It looks a live aircraft.’
A former BA pilot also said there were not toilets like the one seen in one of the pictures on the airline’s simulators.
Glover, who has a grown-up son, regularly takes control of 777s on long-haul flights to destinations including America, the Caribbean and the Far East.
He was born in Windsor, Berks, went to uni in Edinburgh and lives in Dublin.
Yet to be necessarily understood is what prompted the accused British Airways pilot to pleasure himself while in the midst of a long haul flight and secondly documenting said experiences with a camera/mobile device?
At present, the veteran airline man’s future appears uncertain as he awaits for BA bosses to finish their probe. Indeed.
