Pilot sacked after fly-by stunt in big Boeing!

Just as I was posting about the trials and tribulations of being a pilot and how it can be sometimes stressful, then this happens. A British pilot (letting the side down?) has been sacked after performing a low-flying stunt with a brand new Boeing 777. Captain Ian Wilkinson flew the Cathay Pacific plane within 28 feet of the ground with its undercarriage raised, at Boeing's Seattle airfield. And he had VIPs on board. Fly-bys happen - but not without warning!

They must have had their lunches come back up through their noses as they saw the ground come towards them. What was he thinking of?
