http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ew-mobile-phone-cockpit-just-moments-off.html A British Airways captain has been questioned by police after allegedly throwing a mobile phone from his cockpit window just moments before take-off. The incident on Friday evening led to the jet being grounded as the pilot and his crew were removed. Airline sources say the pilot became annoyed after being told he had to return to the airport gate to hand in the mobile. And in an attempt to take off as quickly as possible, he simply chucked the phone out of the cockpit window. But airport officials refused to let the aircraft leave Edinburgh Airport for Gatwick and his actions had the opposite effect – delaying the flight by three hours. The pilot is now facing an investigation by the airline and possible disciplinary action.
