I fly a lot. Got so friendly with a TWA flight attendant on a White House press charter that I married her. Once, arriving for a flight across Fiji from Nadi to Suva, I was told they had overbooked. They asked if I'd fly in the co-pilot’s seat. For the whole trip over the mountains I studied the pilot for signs of a pending heart attack.
On a flight from Cairns to Sydney after that infamous Ansett bomb scare cover-up -- which I revealed on HINCH -- the pilot sent a note back with the hostie. It said, "If I'd known you were on my flight, I would have had you thrown off in Brisbane”.
