An Indonesian pilot has been suspended after allegedly showing up drunk to fly a plane with 154 passengers onboard.
Video footage has emerged showing the pilot, Capt. Tekad Purna, stumbling through the airport security check. He wears dark sunglasses and repeatedly drops his belongings on the floor. A security guard helps him put his things back in his bag. He then proceeds to drop his sunglasses, which break.
Local media has reported that Purna made it as far as the cockpit before being replaced by another pilot. The passengers noticed his condition after he reportedly gave an incoherent announcement.
