Former Pilot Lives in Brazil Airport

No, it’s not The Terminal, but a former airline pilot lived for two weeks in a Brazil airport until authorities removed the German man.

There are conflicting reports if the man was waiting for his girlfriend or had been broken up with. Either way, the man was apparently out of money and decided to stay at the airport.

While the man was no longer a pilot, this is a reminder of increasing public awareness that being a pilot–and working for an airline in general–is far, far gone from its golden days.

Our very own David Learmount recently said why you shouldn’t marry a pilot. For further evidence, consider the cohort of airline pilots that live in a parking lot at LAX.

    Most people would probably say living in an airport would be hell. I’d call it heaven. :)
