Negative Ghost Rider

A 777 pilot was fired for buzzing the airport with a celebratory flyby. The Cathay Pacific Airlines captain buzzed Everett's Paine Airfield, flying within about 30 feet of the runway with his landing gear stowed.

Full story in the Seattle Times.

He may have seen Top Gun a few too many times.

So funny! I love the cheezy background tunes. Not so funny when you get fired for it though, yeah?
