    Sleepy pilot sends plane into nosedive after mistaking planet Venus for another aircraft leaving 16 onboard injured

    This would have been perfect if the passengers were listening to Boney M's "Nightflight to Venus". :lol

    It's scary to think what we as passengers subject ourselves to in order to go there and back again, scarier for the pilots themselves.

    Thank god no one was killed. I'm guessing some criminal charges would have been filed if there were.

    And plane travel is still statistically the safest way to travel?

    Honestly, this sounds like a dropped gag from the original script for Airplane!

    And now the government comes along...

    "Mr. FBI Agent, Sir, why did the plane crash?"
    "Well little missus, some swamp gas reflected off the planet Venus and-"
    "Be honest."
    "I am being honest."
