This is fantastic.

While everyone thought the two Northwest Airlines pilots who overshot their target airport were either sleeping, taking the mile high club to new depths, temporarily abducted by aliens or perhaps caught up in a game of Cat's Cradle, no one suggested the most plausible explanation of all. They were on their computers!!! The AP reports:
Cole and Cheney told investigators that they both had their laptops out while the first officer, who had more experience with scheduling, instructed the captain on monthly flight crew scheduling. (Read the whole story here.)
Well, I wouldn't want to be in any plane they're flying, but besides that, I'd call C & C kindred spirits!
