Budget airline Ryanair had a little midair emergency when the tape (thought to be duct tape) used to patch up the pilot’s window came unstuck.Ooh ah. Some of the 200 passengers saw the ground crew whack the tape around the edge of the windowscreen before take-off. About 20 minutes into the flight from London to Latvia the tape came loose and began making a “disturbing” sound. A spokesman for Ryanair said, “We do not comment on routine technical issues. All Ryanair flights operate in accordance with approved safety standards.” Hmm, that episode of Air Crash Investigation would have been a hoot!

Whoops, call it shock but Michiko Sato (23) is in big trouble after she drove home with the body of an 80 year old pedestrian stuck in her car windscreen. It is believed Sato hit the woman (killing her) while out driving in the early hours of the morning but friggin freaked when she realized the elderly woman was wedged in the windscreen so just drove home . It was her boyfriend who finally called police after presumably thinking WTF. She now faces 17 years in jail.
