Northwest Flight Cancelled Due to Profane Pilot

A pilot who was yelling obscenities during his cell phone conversation caused an Northwest Airlines flight to be cancelled.

The pilot of the flight was yelling obscenities into his phone while passengers were boarding the Las Vegas-to-Detroit flight. The pilot was reported to have gone into a lavatory, where he locked the door and continued his conversation, the Star Tribune said.

The Las Vegas police were dispatched Friday to investigate the incident and were told that the pilot cursed one passenger who confronted him, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor told the Associated Press.
