Then you better hope they don’t have an emergency.
On 6 August 2005 a twin-engined Tuninter ATR-72 turboprop aeroplane was flying from the Italian city of Bari to the Tunisian island of Djerba , when it ran out of fuel. from BBC News
Unfortunately the pilot decided to pray instead of carrying out emergency procedures, and then crashed the plane “in the Mediterranean instead of trying to reach the nearest airport”. Killing 16 people on-board. Obviously his prayers went unnoticed.
It was reported yesterday that the pilot, Chafik Garbi, has been convicted of manslaughter and jailed for 10 years.
I wonder if he prayed to be found not-guilty? Guess if he did, those prayers went unanswered as well.
