I was talking to a fireman last summer who told me he presented his I.D. to a stewardess during a european flight and asked to be shown the flight deck ..... no problem she said and he was duly whisked up front ....... after hearing the story (and remembering this was before WTC etc) I often wondered just how big a deal it would be to get a authentic looking firemans I.D. ...... anyway, those days are gone .....
ps ..... I presume the original post is a joke!
