Pilots License Revoked

Posted by: EMAIL l FACEBOOK l TWITTER

Cleveland, OH (WOIO) - The Federal Aviation Administration has revoked the licenses of two Northwest Airlines captains who missed their landing site in Minneapolis by more than 150 miles.

It happened last week.

The pilots claim they were distracted by personal laptop computers in the cockpit but insiders say more than just laptops contributed to the distraction.

Now both have lost their licenses.

The investigation is continuing.
