Officials say vaping co-pilot caused Air China flight to drop 21,000 feet
The passengers aboard Air China Boeing 737-800 (B-5851) flight #CA106 from Hong Kong to Dalian got an extra thrill for the price of their ticket.
The Co-pilot named One Hug Low had an uncontrollable need of a fix from his electric FAG (don’t get alarmed, FAG is an British slang for cigarette) so he went into the crapper (named after Thomas Crapper the inventor) to get his fix. When he fired up the little tuffy, the lit FAG made the air pressure drop in the cabin, causing the plane to take an unexpected nose dive 21,000 feet.
3/4’s of the passenger had to stand in line to use the crapper to clean up after the embarrassed One Hung Low came out of the crapper with his FAG between his lips and the pilot got the craft under control.
Origin of the word “crap”
It has often been claimed in popular culture that the slang term for human bodily waste, crap, originated with Thomas Crapper because of his association with lavatories. A common version of this story is that American servicemen stationed in England during World War I saw his name on cisterns and used it as army slang, i.e. “I’m going to the crapper”.
One Hung Low was expecting to get the Co-pilot of the year award coming up in November, held in Siberia; BUTT because of his overwhelming addiction to the FAG, he just flushed any of his chances of winning down the crapper.
The moral of this tale is; it is not a good idea to bring a FAG into the crapper on an airplane and lite up the FAG. Beside being dangerous, it is against airline regulations.
