Fine, but was the aircraft scheduled to fly. Is this not the aircraft that has crew compartment onboard so maybe they were going to sleep it off!!

Hmm, is this the giant AN-22 we're talking about? It was supposed to be flying into CGN this evening, but I don't know where from.

Isn't the AN22 the large turbo prop? An only one is still flying methinks.

The AN124 is the giant of the skies, and the AN225 (?) the even more giant of the skies!

Is it possible that in a crew as large as that the guys who were alcoholically affected were rampies/load masters who would have been mere passengers until the aircraft arrived downroute?

The one and only flying An-22 is turboprops, huge great thing. Not as big as the -124 or -225 mind you.

If you were going to fly one of those contraptions for a living you would probably want to drink to excess too!!!

FE had 1.4!
That and the captains 1.1 was measured 3.5hrs after they got stopped at the security checkpoint! A third crewmember is reported to be too drunk to manage the breathalyzer.

Ouch!! That's a bit of a session then. I wonder if the crew understood the drinking laws in Norway before they went out on one?

Oh dear.

What a heap!!! I'd gladly swap it for a Trabant. Fantastic. Give me 1/2 a litre of Vodka and I'll be able to pass the type rating... Hic!!

This is the report from RATI on it. Mind you looking at the pics you'd a few first...

Bergen police detain An-22 crew after positive alcohol testsDavid Kaminski-Morrow, London (09Jan07, 16:53 GMT, 150 words)


Norwegian police are considering possible charges against a number of individuals, including cockpit crew, suspected of consuming excessive alcohol shortly before attempting to ferry an Antonov An-22 transport to Azerbaijan.

Four individuals, out of a group of 16 heading to board the huge turboprop at Bergen Flesland Airport around 06:00 yesterday, initially tested positive for alcohol consumption after being stopped at a security checkpoint.

Further tests, says a spokesman for Bergen Airport police, revealed positive tests on another three individuals. The police subsequently detained all seven who included the aircraft’s captain, co-pilot, navigator and engineer.

“Maybe some of these will be held back for a [legal] case,” he says. “But we don’t know how many we’ll hold.”

Another crew was due to arrive from Ukraine today to fly the aircraft out of Norway. It is unclear which company was operating the aircraft which had been chartered to transport industrial equipment.

Antonow Airlines

The aircraft is operated by Antonov Airlines (Antonov Design Bureau)

Four hours after check in the captain was 5 times over the legal limit. Other crewmembers were even more drunk.

See the impressive An-22 take off from Bergen with new crew: (Also check their crew shuttle):

Jack,

Many people will never forget the last time you landed an Antonov.

You'd stand more chance of passing the type rating if you gave the training captain a bottle of vodka.
