Pilots too busy with laptops to remember flight path, go 150 miles off course

Ross Miller

That Northwest Flight 188 San Diego to Minneapolis that went 150 miles off course? Well, it wasn't because of alcohol or sleeping. No, the cause here was the pilots using their personal laptops while talking about "airline crew flight scheduling procedure." As far as we can tell there was no in-flight WiFi, and it's a good thing, too -- no telling how far off they'd have been if the pilots had access to World of Warcraft.
