I'm pretty sure this isn't a good idea...

Half way through our flight, our pilot decided to text someone. I have vague recollections of being told not to use a mobile phone on an plane from, I dunno, every flight I've ever taken. The incoming reply interfered with the radio connection to the air traffic tower.

Not at all scary then?

If it was just a single person I guess it wouldn't be AS bad as if lots of people on the plane had their phone in use, but there is obviously a reason why not to use one so is quite scary when you see it happen. I remember on my days when I used to frequent from Czech and back a lot, a mate I was travelling with didn't turn his phone off and halfway through the flight he received a text message. the woman sitting next to us looked like she was going to have a heart attack when she heard it....

It was pretty scary to be honest. I'd be scared enough if someone driving a car starts texting, but the pilot of a plane?!

It didn't help that before this incident we almost crashed into a bald eagle and had to go into a nose-dive to avoid it. I'm normally ok flying, but I gotta say I panicked a little.

Well it made a change from the pace on the boat at least. A cruise ship is hardly a white-knuckle thril ride!
