    A commercial airline pilot has been indicted on charges of flying drunk while serving as first officer in the cockpit of a United Express flight from Austin, Texas, to Denver in December of 2009.
    The federal grand jury indictment, returned late on Wednesday, said co-pilot Aaron Jason Cope, 32, of Norfolk, Virginia, was second-in-command when he "unlawfully operated and directed the operation of a common carrier while under the influence of alcohol."
