Google translation

It was something of a tragic incident that passengers and colleagues in a Norwegian aircraft were witnessed yesterday on a flight from Malaga to Aalborg.

Shortly before the exit was a pilot is unwell why the pilot was admitted to a hospital in Malaga. Here the hospital later found that the pilot's life was not to save.

- One of our pilots was taken ill on the plane on the way to Malaga. She was not very good. She was admitted to a hospital in Malaga, where she died, says communications manager at British Airways, Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen, Ekstra Bladet.

- It is very tragic.

He has no further comments to the story.

The passengers did not experience directly what happened, but they were informed that the flight would be delayed.

Cause?
Medical out of date ? If he/she died of natural causes, how did it allow him/her to get a C1 medical ? If it was like a heart condition, surely they would have spotted it during checkup.


EDIT: Obviously from natural causes... I'm a retard.

What makes anybody think when they have a first class medical, they are immune from dying?

She was 31 years, and what makes anyone think that the cause of death will be announced in the media within less than 48 hours?

It is actually "Norwegian Air Shuttle", but they market themselves as just "Norwegian".

Quite.

There is a thing called SADS Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, that strikes down the young without any warning.
That is for INFORMATION only and is NOT a definitive statement of how she died.

Medicals don't mean anything and are there to placate insurance companies half the time. I could be a heroin crack addict, but have i ever had a blood test for drugs etc. No

Leave the poor girl alone.

RIP

A few years back one of my kickboxing instructors died suddenly. At 27 she was packing her bags in preparation for a national competition when part of a valve in her heart broke off. A late 20's fit athelete who died of natural causes while under no physical extertion.

People die, all the time. Leave the poor girl and her family alone.

Happened to a young lady ATCO at a place I worked. No history of health problems but a sudden asthma attack killed her.

One of my AMEs told me my medical examination was like the MoT on my car. I was perfectly fir at the time of the medical but could drop dead walking out the door.

What a complete he is for doing so.

Lets hope he lives up to his alias and stays where he belongs, a Wannabe!

Some AME's are quite amused by the tests they give. My one who has retired due to EASA was quite up front about it.

He had over the years had several pilots drop dead of natural causes quite soon after the yearly inspection. One or two in flight.

He said to a one they were the ones that he considered the least likely to pop there clogs. The pie eating smoking chuffs seem to rock on and when they did start to show wear they tended to show signs and were removed from flying before the event.


Condolences to friends and family a life cut short in its prime.

A little more respect please

I dont think this is the time for questions about the medical examination system or any failings that some might think it has.

The lady died at an unusualy young age for reasons that will only become clear with the passing of time, please have a little more respect for her and the people who have been affected by her tragic death.

Would you all please refrain from these unfounded comments and crackpot theorys or go and find another forum unconnected with personal loss to spout them on.

Several of my collegues have had thrombosis after long days in a cockpit seat. One of them almost ended up amputating some of his leg due to this an another one had the clot trapped in his lungs and fortunately not in his brain.
As long as you are seated the clot very often stays in your feet but upon starting walking around it can follow the bloodstream to some more dangerous place in your body.
So my advise is to leave the seat at least once an hour just for a short walk or stretch.
