Norway jails whisky-drinking co-pilot

A Latvian co-pilot who admitted drinking whisky and beer hours before an airBaltic flight from Norway to Crete has been jailed for six months.
Two flight attendants were also given prison sentences of 45 and 60 days respectively. The co-pilot, 38, was found to have a blood alcohol level of almost seven times the legal limit.
He told the court that he and his colleagues had downed two bottles of whisky before he began drinking beer.
“We lost control,” the man said, explaining his blood alcohol reading of 1.35mg of ethanol per millilitre of blood, far over the 0.2mg limit.
