|A BA pilot has been suspended over these pictures which appear to show a pilot masturbating in a cockpit|
A BA pilot has been suspended amid claims he pleasured himself wearing stockings in the cockpit at 38,000 feet. Captain Colin Glover, 51, was removed from flying duties after we alerted bosses to a series of sordid images seemingly shot in a Boeing 777 on a long-haul flight.
|Glover has denied that the pictures of the pilot in the cockpit are of him|
They reveal a pervy airman in stockings taking lurid selfies of his aroused manhood. One image shows a leg sprawled over the dashboard while the plane appears to be on autopilot and with the co-pilot’s seat empty. In another, an airman spreads his stocking-clad legs over the joystick while revealing himself.
|Pornographic magazines were laid open across the craft’s controls|
A further sordid snap shows the man with his genitals exposed in a cabin’s toilet. Other images show a pornographic magazine spread on the controls and explicit playing cards scattered around the cockpit. Serial numbers on the control panel suggest the pictures were taken aboard at least two separate British Airways planes.

The airline confirmed yesterday it was probing the images — and whether they were taken feet from passengers mid-flight. BA said: “We are taking these allegations extremely seriously.”

Twice-married dad Glover — a BA Captain since 1990 — is thought to have denied to bosses the pictures are of him. But he is likely to be permanently grounded if they disagree. A senior airline source said investigators would examine whether the images could have been shot in a flight simulator.

One of the serial numbers visible — GYMMB — is used on BA’s simulators. But it is also registered to a twin-engine Boeing. The other — GVIIL — is also one of the 777 fleet used by BA.
Airline expert Chris Yates said yesterday: “This is very dangerous if the plane is in mid-flight. “If you are flying, you can fly into serious turbulence.
“This person is in danger of losing his aircraft and his job.” He said it was unlikely the pictures were taken on a simulator.
Chris added: “You can tell by the lighting it is a plane. “There is also more going on in the control panels than on a simulator. It looks a live aircraft.”
A former BA pilot also said there were not toilets like the one seen in one of the pictures on the airline’s simulators.
