Cathay Pacific 777-367ER So your company just spent $140 million on a brand new Boeing 777-300ER, you’re in Seattle to pick the beauty up and the CEO is sitting in the cockpit.  What could be better than a low-level fly by to see how she handles?  Good idea?  Unfortunately, the senior Cathay Pacific pilot who performed this stunt has now been fired.

The aftermath

Lots of chatter in the aviation forums about this one.  Seems to be running about 50-50 as to whether the guy should be fired or not.
